FILM: Hannah Arendt

Hannah ArendtScreening at the Windsor, Nedlands from tomorrow (Thursday, March 13) is the film, Hannah Arendt starring Barbara Sukowa. It’s a biography by Margaret Von Trotta about Hannah Arendt, an influential philosopher and political theorist, whose reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann led to her famous concept of the ‘banality of evil’. Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving together a narrative spanning three countries, Von Trotta turns the often invisible passion of thought into dramatic cinema.
