The 2012 film centers on Arendt’s response to the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem, which she covered for The New Yorker, and subsequently published as a book: Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (1st ed. 1963). Her writing on the trial became controversial for its depiction of both Eichmann and the Jewish councils.
Screening followed by a discussion of the film, led by:
- Professor David Luban, University Professor of Law and Philosophy, Georgetown Law Center
