VITA ACTIVA: The Spirit of Hannah Arendt

The German-Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt caused uproar by coining the subversive concept of the “Banality of Evil” while reporting on the trial of Adolph Eichmann. Her private life was equally controversial thanks to her love affair with the renowned German philosopher and Nazi supporter, Martin Heidegger. This spirited documentary, with its abundance of archival material, offers an intimate portrait of the whole of Arendt’s life, traveling to places she lived, worked, loved and was betrayed.

Co-presented by the Washington Jewish Film Festival,  Heinrich Boell Foundation, the German Historical Institute, the German School of Washington, DC, and The Goethe Institut
