Oncle Bernard—L’anti-leçon d’économie (Oncle Bernard—A Counter-Lesson in Economics), 2015, Canada/Spain, 79 min.
Director: Richard Brouillette
Bernard Maris, who wrote under the pseudonym “Oncle Bernard” in his Charlie Hebdo column, was killed during the attack on the magazine’s offices on January 7, 2015. This frank and unvarnished interview with the radical economist and journalist was filmed in March 2000. It offers a true “counter-lesson in economics,” for which the director gives center stage to Maris’s vibrant, incisive, and mischievous words of dissent.
