Philosophy and Film: Hannah Arendt

When: November 18, 2017, at 3 p.m.

Where: Amphitheatre G1124, Saint Paul University, 223 Main Street, Ottawa

The film portrays Hannah Arendt (Barbara Sukowa) during the four years (1960–64) in which she observes, writes and endures the furious reception for her work about the trial of the Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. Watching Arendt as she attends the trial, staying by her side as she is both barraged by her critics and supported by a tight band of loyal friends, we experience the intensity of this powerful Jewish woman who fled Nazi Germany in 1933. The fierce, chain-smoking Arendt is an exile who is happy and flourishing in America, but whose penetrating vision makes her an outsider wherever she goes.

Actors: Barbara Sukowa, Axel Milberg, Janet McTeer, Julia Jentsch, Ulrich Noethen, Michael Degen

Director: Margarethe Von Trotta
