Film forúm "Hannah Arendt", the banality of evil (24/01/2019)

How to make a film about a philosopher?

How to translate the life of Hannah Arendt into a cinematographic action, a woman of words before action?

The German filmmaker Margarethe von Trotta finally found the answer in one fact: the trial against the Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann, the most applied executor of the so-called "final solution" and impeccable bureaucrat of the transport system to the Nazi concentration camps.

The Cine Club La Lantern Mágika, has scheduled for Friday 25 at 7 pm the screening of 'Hannah Arendt', a moving film that focuses on the life of the Jewish-German philosopher, an independent thinker who thinks without support and stars think with nothing to hold on to (Denken ohne Geländer).

As the director of the film, Margarethe von Trotta, emphasizes, the great challenge is to portray a person who, obviously, lives more in his thoughts and dialogues than in his performances.

The film invites to debate, to take sides in the multiple controversies that are developed.

You can not know only the thinker but the woman in her daily life as a teacher, wife, lover and friend.

You can also follow how lifelong friendships are exposed to very serious burdens and how, with a few exceptions, friendships break down.

The impact on the viewer is profound.

A collective work of remarkable success in which they intervene in an extraordinary work?

six women and although the spectators have never read a word of their books, will be thrilled by the intellectual and emotional courage that transmits the interpretation of Barbara Sukowa.

The years chosen in the film represent those of his greatest public controversy, originating in the trial of Adolf Eichmann, in Jerusalem.

The film transmits this thematic decision with a dramatic initial scene: the capture of the Nazi criminal in Argentina on May 11, 1960, by a commando of the Israeli secret service Mossad that transports him shortly after to Israel.

However, the decision to concentrate the film in these four intense years leaves aside most of Hannah Arendt's biography, with the philosophical origins of her thought, her Jewish identity, the experience of totalitarianism and the difficult conditions of your own survival.

They are constitutive elements of Hannah Arendt's "thinking" (Denken) and "acting" (Handeln), both in private and in public, in that her political theory is nurtured on the one hand by German philosophy in the first third of the 20th century and on the other side of the history of lived historical experiences, "The thought itself is born from the events of living experience and must be linked to them as the only indicators to be able to orient oneself"

It is an invitation to the spectators to continue thinking and debating on a question that retains enormous importance, both for the present moment and for the future.
