German director Margarethe von Trotta’s 2012 biopic Hannah Arendt centers on Arednt’s response to the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann, which she covered for the New Yorker. Her writing on the trial became controversial for its depiction of both Eichmann and the Jewish councils, and for its introduction of Arendt’s now-famous concept of “the banality of evil”. The film, which captures Arendt at one of the most pivotal moments of her life and career, also features portrayals of other prominent intellectuals, including philosopher Martin Heidegger; it also makes use of original film footage from the 1961 Eichmann trial, in black & white, as well as the real and harrowing testimony of survivors and the prosecutor, Gideon Hausner.
