6:00 PM–8:30 PM Columbia Journalism School, The Brown Center for Digital Media, Pulitzer Hall
Véronique Brachet Cabu, joined in discussion by Joel Simon, Victor Navasky, and Suzanne Daley
This event is organized by the Columbia Journailsim School.
Join Columbia Journalism School for a screening of “Inside Charlie Hebdo,” a documentary based on the February 2006 newsroom discussion at French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on whether and how to republish the infamous Danish “Mohammed cartoons.” Nine years later Charlie Hebdo staffers were murdered by two terrorists in retaliation for publishing caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed. With remarkable prescience, the filmmakers captured the irreverent French satirists discussing the very issues raised by their own deaths.
Véronique Brachet Cabut, widow of Jean Cabut, one of the cartoonists killed in the Charlie Hebdo attack, will speak briefly after the film. She’ll then be joined in discussion by Joel Simon, executive director, the Committee to Protect Journalists; Victor Navasky, author of The Art of Controversy and Suzanne Daley, former Paris bureau chief of the New York Times.
