The U.S. theatrical release of Hannah Arendt, a film by Margarethe von Trotta, was announced by Zeitgeist Films. The film will open at Laemmle theaters, The Royal in West L.A. and Town Center 5 in Encino on June 7.

The German Film Academy recently awarded Hannah Arendt its Silver LOLA award (Germany’s equivalent to America’s Oscar) for Best Film, and Barbara Sukowa for Best Actress LOLA for her performance. The sublime Barbara Sukowa reteams with director Margarethe von Trotta (Vision, Rosa Luxemburg) for her brilliant new biopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist, Hannah Arendt. Arendt’s reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker—controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils—introduced her now-famous concept of the “Banality of Evil.”

Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta turns the often-invisible passion for thought into immersive, dramatic cinema. An Official Selection at the Toronto International and New York Jewish Film Festivals, Hannah Arendt also co-stars Klaus Pohl as philosopher Martin Heidegger, Nicolas Woodeson as The New Yorker editor, William Shawn, and two-time Oscar Nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) as novelist Mary McCarthy. Not Rated.

    Hannah Arendt said that the Shoah could not have been so comprehensive without some measure of collaboration from Jewish leaders. “Something between resistance and cooperation”. As someone who was born in the ashes of the holocaust, I am afraid that I am seeing a replication of this mindset by the self appointed Jewish leaders of today.
