Aurélie Charon / Caroline Gillet / Amélie Bonnin

Since 2012, radio journalists and producers Aurélie Charon and Caroline Gillet have explored innovative documentary formats; their voices already well known to listeners of France Inter and France Culture, this duo, together with illustrator Amélie Bonnin, have developed a live program on stage accompanied by music, archives, and real-life exchanges.

Charon and Gillet have travelled extensively over the past few years to Algiers, Moscow, Tehran, Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and a number of other cities in Europe, to interview youth from different socio-economic backgrounds and hear their thoughts about everyday life and their hopes for the future, thus creating Radio Live. Over the course of these conversations, we see that the guests share their own life stories and personal revolutions, all expressing a desire to actively participate in society. The staging of their voices offers precious and emotionally charged moments of exchange and expression. In this particular iteration of Radio Live, guests Ines Tanovic-Sijercic, a Bosnian war survivor and Sumeet Samos, an “untouchable” from India who overcame this social status to advocate for education of lower castes, will be joined by Princeton students.

Estimated running time: 1 hour, 45 minutes / In English
