Is life meaningless? And other absurd questions
Albert Camus grew up surrounded by violence. His homeland of Algeria was mired in conflict. He lost his father in World War I. Seeing World War II's devastation, Camus grew despondent. What was the meaning behind all this endless bloodshed and suffering? And if the world was meaningless, could our individual lives still hold value? Nina Medvinskaya explores Camus' philosophy of the absurd. [Directed by Avi Ofer, narrated by Bethany Cutmore-Scott, music by Stephen LaRosa].
