WAMM Monday Night Movie - "Vita Activa: The Spirit of Hannah Arendt"

4200 Cedar Avenue South, Minneapolis

The German-Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt caused an uproar in the 1960s by coining the subversive concept of the "Banality of Evil" when referring to the trial of Adolph Eichmann, which she covered for The New Yorker. 

This thought provoking and and spirited documentary, with its abundance of archival materials, offers an intimate portrait of the whole of Arendt's life, traveling to places where she lived, worked, loved, and was betrayed. There is renewed interest in Arendt throughout the world, especially among young people who find her insights into the nature of evil, totalitarianism, ideologies, and the perils faced by refugees, more relevant than ever. 

Connecting the dots. Lively discussion follows.

Free. Open to the public. All are welcome.
