(recorded and streamed on 22 Feb, 2021)
After touching some smaller topics, Simon speaks at length about Jean-Claude Carrière, screenwriter, playwright, narrator, dramaturg for the greatest films of Luis Buñuel and theatre productions of Peter Brook and many others. A remarkable person, a true liar, he died on 8th February, 2021.
