TORONTO, Nov. 21, 2012 /CNW/ - The National Film Board of Canada (NFB),
Groupe Média TFO and Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) have
organized an evening in tribute to Jacques Bensimon that will take
place on Monday, December 3, at 6p.m. at the Bell Blue Room of the

opportunity to present his book, Agadir, un paradis dérobé, posthumously published by Editions L'Harmattan.
Members of the Bensimon family, as well as friends and former
colleagues, will take part in the tribute, which will include
testimonials, film excerpts and readings from Jacques Bensimon's book,
in which he recounts the early years of his life in Agadir, Morocco.
Fifty years after the earthquake that destroyed his hometown in a
matter of seconds, the author gives an overview of Morocco's history up
to the time his family left for Canada.
