DIVINE SURPRISE

What is a virus? A thing in itself, an essence visiting the body, something one can separate and treat in isolation? Or a dysfunction in a collection of organs? What is a body? Is it made up of silence and confinement? Or is it a set of mucuses, coughs, fears, terrors, sweat-drenched nightmares and bodies attached to other bodies?

Bernard‐Henri Lévy is a philosopher, activist, filmmaker, and the author of over thirty books, including The Empire and the Five Kings: America’s Abdication and the Fate of the World (2019), The Genius of Judaism (2017), Public Enemies: Dueling Writers Take on Each Other and the World (2012), Left in Dark Times: A Stand Against the New Barbarism (2008), American Vertigo: Traveling America in the Footsteps of Tocqueville (2006), Who Killed Daniel Pearl? (2003), and Barbarism with a Human Face (1979).

Lévy writes for The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Sunday Times, The Atlantic, Foreign Policy, Vanity Fair, CNN, Tablet Magazine, The Algemeiner, Le Point, La Repubblica, El Espanol and other international outlets.

In 2016, his documentary, Peshmerga, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. Filmed in 2015 along the thousand-kilometer front separating the Iraqi Kurds from the forces of the Islamic State, Peshmerga was the centerpiece of the New York Jewish Film Festival in January 2017. Lévy’s second documentary on Kurdistan explored the fight to reclaim the city of Mosul from the Islamic State. The Battle of Mosul premiered in Europe in March 2017. Earlier documentaries include The Oath of Tobruk (2012) and Bosna! (1994). The Quad Cinema in New York and the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles presented a retrospective of his four war documentaries in January 2020.

Lévy’s international activism began in Bangladesh at the age of 20 and has not ceased to this day. At the heart of the matter is an obligation to the other, the dispossessed, and the forgotten, which he has sought to embody over decades of championing “lost causes,” from Bosnia to Africa’s forgotten wars, from Libya and Ukraine to the Kurdish Peshmerga’s fight against the Islamic State.

Lévy is co-founder of the antiracist group SOS Racisme and he has served on diplomatic missions for the French government.

He is widely regarded as one of the most influential public intellectuals in the West.
