This event has passed.
The last film in the German-Austrian Film Series is Hannah Arendt by the award-winning Margarethe v. Trotta. “This is a film that shows Arendt as a person caught between her thoughts and her emotions—one who often has to disentangle her intellect from her feelings. We see her as a passionate thinker and professor; as a woman capable of lifelong friendship—she was hailed as a woman who was a ‘genius at friendship’—but also as a fighter who courageously defended her ideas and never shied away from and confrontation. But her goal was always to understand. Her signature declaration, “I want to understand,” is the phrase that best describes her.” [v. Trotta]
