Hannah Arendt

This German-Luxembourgish-French biographical drama, directed by Margarethe von Trotta, with a cast of esteemed actors, focuses on the German-Jewish philosopher, Hanna Arendt . The film is about her reportage of and response to the 1961 trial of Adolph Eichman, for The New Yorker magazine, when she introduced the concept of the “banality of evil.” The film makes use of footage from the actual trial, and testimony of survivors.

“…weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion of thought into immersive, dramatic cinema. An Official Selection at the Toronto International and New York Jewish Film Festivals, Hannah Arendt (features Barbara Sukowa as Arendt) also co-stars Klaus Pohl as philosopher Martin Heidegger, Nicolas Woodeson as New Yorker editor William Shawn, and two-time Oscar Nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) as novelist Mary McCarthy.” (c) Zeitgeist Magazine
