Closing Night!

This biopic starring Barbara Sukowa covers a tumultuous four-year period in the life of the great philosopher and writer, Hannah Arendt. The film starts in New York at The New School, where Arendt taught after having escaped from a French detention camp and moves on to Jerusalem, where she covered the trial of Adolf Eichmann for The New Yorker. The German director Margarethe von Trotta makes stirring drama of the backlash against Arendt’s writing about the trial and her “banality of evil” theory. Co-starring Janet McTeer as author and Arendt confident Mary McCarthy.

Actors Barbara Sukowa and Janet McTeer and screenwriter Pam Katz in person!
