Children of the night: "More than a million Jewish children died in the Holocaust. This brief film is the result of a world-wide search for archival material showing some of these children. The footage we discovered - in the U.S.A., Israel, Britain, France and Germany - was often in extremely poor condition and always silent. It reveals the barest trace of what was lost"--Title screen.

A brilliant biopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist. Arendt's reporting on the 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann in The New Yorker, controversial both for her portrayal of Eichmann and the Jewish councils, introduced her now-famous concept of the 'Banality of Evil.' Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into dramatic cinema.
