Hannah Arendt looks at the life of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. In 1961, Arendt reported for the New Yorker on the war crimes trial of Nazi SS lieutenant colonel Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. Her articles, which introduced the now-famous concept of the banality of evil, triggered unprecedented controversy with Jewish public figures and even some of Hannah’s friends, who accused her of rationalising Nazi barbarism. Using footage from the Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, Margarethe von Trotta has created an engaging and highly dramatic film.

Event

The 18:05 screening of Hannah Arendt on Tue 8 October will be accompanied by a free post-screening discussion led by Dr Andy Willis, Dr Shivani Pal and Richard Lees. This discussion will explore the legacy of Hannah Arendt’s ideas with regard to international justice and human rights, and we’ll also examine the portrayal of Hannah Arendt and Mary McCarthy in this film.
