Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt Release Date: May 29, 2013

In Hannah Arendt, the sublime Barbara Sukowa reteams with director Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, Rosa Luxemburg) for abiopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Hannah Arendt’s reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker – controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils – introduced her now-famous concept of the “Banality of Evil.” Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, Margarethe von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema.
