CALA Spring 2017 Foreign Film Series: Margarethe von Trotta's "Hannah Arendt"

Friday, March 24, 6:00 p.m.

Deutsches Haus at NYU

As part of the "CALA Spring 2017 Foreign Film Series—A View From A Broad," the NYU Center for Applied Liberal Arts and Deutsches Haus at NYU present Margarethe von Trotta's acclaimed biographical drama "Hannah Arendt," a portrait of the political theorist and influential thinker during her controversial coverage of Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann's war crimes trial at Nuremberg for The New Yorker. Pam Katz, who wrote the film's screenplay, will present the film.

In our increasingly fractured world, multiple perspectives are more important than ever, and women's views of our existence must reach more screens. CALA's spring film series features the works of six international female filmmakers. In addition to Margarethe von Trotta's Hannah Arendt (2012), the following movies will be shown: Iciar Bollain's Flores De Otro Mundo (Flowers from Another World, 1999), Huang Shuqin's 人鬼情 (Woman Demon Human, 1987), Liliana Cavan's Il Portiere Di Notte (The Night Porter, 1974), Susan Bier’s Efter Brylluppet (After the Wedding, 2006) and Deniz Gamze Erguven’s Mustang (2016). All of the films are introduced by NYU faculty and are shown at various venues, including Deutsches Haus at NYU, Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimòand and King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center.

With RSVP, this event is free of charge. If you would like to attend, please register here.
