Meet the Filmmaker: Writer Pamela Katz
A brilliant German-Jewish writer and thinker teaching at The New School, Hannah Arendt covered the trial of Adolf Eichmann for the New Yorker and wrote a short book titled Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil. The attacks and counterattacks that followed still resonate, and the controversy cost Arendt several longstanding friendships. In his review in the New York Times, A. O. Scott called the film a "celebration of seriousness" that "turns ideas into the best kind of entertainment."
"Its climax, in which Arendt defends herself against critics, matches some of the great courtroom scenes in cinema and provides a stirring reminder that the labor of figuring out the world is necessary, difficult and sometimes genuinely heroic."
A. O. Scott, The New York Times
