  • The Pirogue by Moussa Toure (Senegal/France) Theatrical Release at Film Forum NYC

  • Jan 28, 2013 to Feb 5, 2013
  • Location: The Film Forum
  • Description:


    Senegal, a West African nation on the Atlantic Ocean, was home to Africa’s greatest movie-maker, Ousmane Sembene. Today, Moussa Touré follows in the master’s footsteps with this drama of 30 men (and one woman, a stowaway) who set out on an illegal 7-day voyage to Spain – making the perilous trip in a pirogue – a boat resembling a vastly oversized dinghy. While sharing a common desire to build a better future, these men hail from different ethnic and religious backgrounds. The story grows from a finely delineated mosaic of personalities – reactions to the journey’s mounting danger – that span the emotional panoply of human experience. Touré’s compelling tale says as much about the universal nature of courage and perfidy as it does about the economic realities faced by so many of the world’s people. THE PIROGUE was featured in Cannes 2012, in the Un Certain Regard section.

    Mensonge et philosophie: une approche psychologique du discours philosophique

    La condamnation morale du mensonge empêche d'en observer la richesse. Le plus intéressant des mensonges est sans doute celui qu'on se fait à soi-même, d'autant plus difficile à détecter qu'il prend l'apparence de la bonne foi. L'indice permettant de le suivre est l'insistance paradoxale à vouloir dire la vérité. À ce jeu-là nombre de philosophes figurent parmi les plus suspects, tant la recherche de la vérité leur est consubstantielle. Mais leur mensonge tient moins au contenu des thèses qu'à l'usage du langage spéculatif. La fonction du discours théorique pourrait être d'affirmer le contraire de ce que l'on vit. Quelques exemples de Rousseau
