The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) is thrilled to welcome world-renowned actor Gérard Depardieu for a discussion with actress Candice Bergen about the English publication of his new book Innocent, on Monday, September 18 at FIAF’s Florence Gould Hall.
Depardieu’s Innocent abounds with fervent observations on friendship, cinema, religion, politics, and more, offering intimate insights into the mind of one of cinema’s most mercurial and impassioned actors. It is also the account of a man in search of faith and includes passages about Depardieu’s explorations of Islam, Buddhism, and other religions. Espousing a notion of innocence that calls us to move beyond dogma and ideology, Depardieu urges us to engage with others with respect, receptivity, and mindfulness.
