About the filmmaker

Bernard Henri Lévy is a French philosopher, filmmaker, and author. He has directed five documentary films: Bosna! (filmed in 1993-1994, during the siege of Sarajevo), The Oath of Tobruk (his diary on the battlefield of the Libyan revolution and his documented efforts to convince Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Nicolas Sarkozy and David Cameron to intervene in the 2011 Libyan war), Peshmerga (a road-movie, filmed between July and November 2015, along the 1,000 kilometer frontline separating ISIS and the Kurds) and The Battle of Mosul (during the 2015-2016 fierce combat to liberate the so-called Caliphate’s capital, Lévy was embedded with the Kurds and, then, with the Iraqi Golden Division). Three of these films were Official Selections of the Cannes Film Festival. Lévy was also one of the founders of the “New Philosophers” movement. He is a committed intellectual, known for his opposition to authoritarianism.
