Hannah Arendt movie – trailer and a few thoughts

Need to see this film, I missed it when it first came out. A useful reminder from Progressive Geographies.

Progressive Geographies

I finally watched the Hannah Arendt movie yesterday. In some parts it’s flawed – especially the flashback scenes to her time at Freiburg University, and the affair with Heidegger – but other parts are powerful and thoughtful. It mainly focuses on the Adolf Eichmann trial, blending documentary footage with the film. I liked that it was in multiple languages, with subtitles. It’s especially good on the controversy following her book on the trial, and the complicated relationship with Hans Jonas was interesting. Worth watching if you can.
