Hannah Arendt is an immersion into the life of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. During the year 1961, she reported for The New Yorker on the war crimes trial of the Nazi Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. Her articles introducing her now-famous concept of the “Banality of Evil” triggered off an unprecedented controversy. Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, Margarethe von Trotta turns the often invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema.
