My friend and co-author Randal Douc is one of the main actors in the film Le Chemin that came out last week in French cinemas. Taking place in Cambodia and directed by Jeanne Labrune. I have not yet seen the film but will next week as it is scheduled in a nearby cinema (and only six in Paris!)… (Randal was also a main actor in Rithy Panh’s Un barrage contre le Pacifique, as well as the off-voice in the Oscar nominated Rithy Panh’s L’image manquante.) In connection with this new movie, Randal was interviewed in Allociné, the major French website on current movies. With questions about his future film and theatre projects, but none about his on-going maths research!!!
