Hannah Arendt – Her Thinking Changed the World
Directed by: Margarethe von Trotta,
Hannah Arendt is an observer in the trial of Adolf Eichmann. He expects to face a monster. Instead, he faces a mundane bureaucrat. Portrait of a courageous and determined woman the documentary is a biographical feature film about the philosopher Hannah Arendt (1906-1975), especially about her observations and comments at the trial of Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. Condensed in a portrait of an exceptional intellectual of the 20th century, the film also takes us into the most intimate corners of the New York milieu of German-Jewish emigrants from the early 1960s.
