Aurélie Charon, Caroline Gillet, and Amélie Bonnin
Since 2011 French radio journalists
Aurélie Charon and Caroline Gillet have been
interviewing young activists from Algiers,
Moscow, Tehran, Istanbul, Sarajevo, and
Tel Aviv about their hopes for the future and
how they are realizing their dreams.
At FIAF, Charon and Gillet—who are both in their 30s—will bring together their contemporaries in an attempt to paint a portrait of a new generation of change makers. Ines Tanovic-Sijercic, a Bosnian War survivor who is fighting against ethnic division in Sarajevo and Sumeet Samos, who overcame his “untouchable” social status in India to advocate for education of lower castes will be joined by two NYC-based activists.
Created in 2013, Radio Live brings these voices together on stage to share personal stories and revelations. Amélie Bonnin’s contemporaneous illustration and video, along with live music accompaniment, combine for a unique radio-performance that frames moving conversations about harnessing the power of social change within a lively and experimental setting.
Tickets start at $15
