because in the few in the in the first pages you are writing i didn't want to trade the style jenna. what do you mean by these. well it into china is a is a place which- including the war in that. capaptured the imagination of all of every. semi westerners who with that whether they were french planters soldiers. american soldiers of journalists all of that- and we'll- changes people and changes me and- and i didn't want to. for more. give a sense that i was nostalgic for laurel i have setting a standard for the country's i was in but they were going through the most horrendous times a one who shouldn't be nostalgic about that but but even so it it it's a it's a place whwhich is stands apart ad mocks me very strongly in m most of the people served in that sense when his nostalgie. is it so you think- was it took awhile so to say i do to say
3:42 pm
farewell to indo china. old memories as a young j journalis- being cooked in the seven major- war- india china. wrwriting the book was a way to. four to and into hard c covers such as between hard cocovers my experience isn't't i it- i in io china as wilkerson young will correspond but it's also a book about coming of age rate it's a book from going from a- going into entering adulthood in in in in in by confronting- horrific situatitions- in the oe of the most exotic and beautiful places in the world. you are very nicely- using the mekong riva- which is namely- the at the mother of waters- with you if you go by the district in the name. and using- the mekong river- as a and then g. of memorials are-
3:43 pm
none of senses and but you are also saying you were writingg the mekong is not as innocent. as it seemems whatt do you meany that- will- thatt one h has a romantic vision of the mekong which is the m mt beautifuful river and- i've traveled.d. a long length of it- not should not in chinaa but in indiaia china. laos vietnam cambodia- i've seen it in its ferocity in the cooking fulls- often wear them to the border between laos and cambodia- and then it becomes more gentle. how is it the river flow anyway- in setting the d dry season butut e also seen a ticket travels through lands which- at that time we were at war. and mr six things werere happening. all around the mekong and i used to see bodies floating down the making the people who been massacred. a lot of them civilians. the as i said to be is a is an iconic. all you twisted twenty a year ago and very very famous one of the key books- r regarding the memories
3:44 pm
of- dean to chennai- into china. the war. the question is how do we explain- the y. inference- we were covering the intention is what the intercolonial. the war is indeed to china he took twenty two years to be translated from the french public. would you say or think that there was maybe in france and in the west particularly some problems to face bad memories because this by the way. a w war we lost to the as french as algeria and was. quite difficult. to address to the public these kind of memories. maybe a little bit but i think thahat certain the main reason it wasn't chosen to french to be honest with you is that my english publishers were lazy about transformation fronts- and- i didn't do much about it myself but- is in the background very much wanted it to be translated into french. i've been very strong attachment to france- in all sorts of f differerent ways andf course tha wasas x. t the engine
3:45 pm
moving to the former french colonies of vietnam and cambodia- make t that even more strongng foror me- i thihink thi thinkk thahat's- is there is a- yes there's a there's a tendency of fiber some countries to turn that down trying to get in turn that back on there is a colonial episodes at the same time- it's in the americans were not t too eager eyes well to address the defeat in the in vietnanam a few years later merited merit conspicuous- mmhm. it has a- very determined to feast and mamagnanimouss in victory as we- as we saw from the second world war. we describe in the in the in some mmhm some of the most somber pages very sinister is. some things you have been some events havee been- witnessing a regarding the event the tragic events of the bookk people from vietnam leaving. after seventy five- going into i seasoned-
3:46 pm
into china china sea i wanted to ask you as a reporter. are you a combibined this withh your memories you arch your spirits as a weakness of these such tragic because what you're describing is extremely violence- jones when you live with ghosts. sometimes less so now because i'm older- but- yes absolutely and- when i'm- confronted her for example by. photographs of. a southeast asian show associate people people from cambodia vietnam laos- incidents in difficult circumstances i'm ready ready touched because i know who i can see. in their faces what type of soreness in their faces. in nineteen seventy to nineteen seventy five when i was that i can see how they how they express fear how they express terra how they express hunger. it's a it's ready sort of. breaks my heart do you think i it's the savings when yu
3:47 pm
were still young man built you are destroyed you what is the- the percentage. i think it builds me. but i'm the question is at what i'm not the same person of his hit i was all those years ago. but i think that. someone said to me that's no such thing as a bad experience i tend to brady x. becausee you can learn from it- but that's a tough question- but i mean that you. you know i was terribly what the important thing is that i am you know genesis terribly privileged i i was very privileged to be that. at a young age i was very privileged to- to see those things horrible as words to seed by foot it's- most horrendous at the spread at the shop and- and a season- yes still s suffering but also see teterrific humanity. you knoww human beieings helping each othr as well. and that box uses serve from that point of view i don't. think it turned me into a cynic m. baback t to. the peoe tragedy i wanted to ask you
3:48 pm
your reflection after decades of covering wars all around a al around the world. it looks like- the story. a teaches nothing. because we have the very same book people tragedy. in the indian ocean in the military and we have to refer jeez all around the world and still the same. main problems of corrupt governments- the lack of understanding of willing to do something about it by the international. community what is your reflection did worth to doing all what you did. well it doesn't matter if i what i did i think it's very dispersing that these things just repeat themselves that history repeats itself. i'm not one of those journalists who. believe they can change the world by what they've written- actually i mean i think that's a critically pretentiousus- but- i think you know trying to write what you see and what you feel is a journalist- it because we are we are in a privileged place which other and- and leading your readers. as if they're on your shoulders so they can actually see what you
3:49 pm
see and bring it home to them i think. that has to be has to be a good thing. there are some. pages in lines you all wririting a new book you mention these beauty into sadness this as much as true as- in french i would like to ask you are you reconcile. these apparent contradictions between. violence barbaric actions we have been witnessing and this beauty i would have the specialllly what you have we hae been with the singing in cambodia. how do you reconcile that. or was it possible. well i think the i think that human bebeings h have two sides of thm and- i think one of the things that i i camame away withh is t. is that- humanan b beings even n the even in you know in in in these places- in the mist exotic places may become behaved disgustingly towards each other. and they can be led very badly by people who encourage that- and that's what happened in cambodia i mean there's a- you know there's a famous french expression which
3:50 pm
is the story o of command ththis command smile because incumbents always smile- andnd o they have us and they have a therapeutic. tool that peach people. but at the end of famous cambodian king- king king organised a nineteenth century who said to. french it could continue office offices he said you'v've got to realize the cambodians are like water buffalo in the in thee r rice fieldsds- this it seemed to be very classy bubut if you pokoke themem too much. they could complete the matter very very angry and that's what happens. do you think. well you you are a- proficient experience. to a the kids ago you need. in southeast asia will be possible. today i think launching i think it's eitherr is so very i i mean if y you and nowow. first you cn get away from all and i. from male office here for and i just editor you gotta move on final

3:56 pm
healthcare crisis. the show aids left a real mark on a whole range of creative industries because we need to think about how that. was experienced by those who would say how those turning points when negotiated by different cultural actors. the lessons we learned from that time and how we can use that in the event of future creativity. it's not about replicating the- it's about bringing some new to the table. at the french institute of fashion researchers are devising labels to welcome the way they engage with wider society in the months and years to come. let the loss of customers and we tend to expect all those who have some sort of influence on society. to act in ways we deem responsible. and that's on the subject and i'm not just talking about luxury brands and labels it is extra zacks personality flaws it's not enough to simply say the right paying. more of her wordss and- what it is how to improve
