This is a special screening that is being co-sponsored by the Nashville Jewish Film Festival. Speaker info TBA. I suggest buying tickets in advance at the link below or at the box office as it's a special screening.

In the award-winning HANNAH ARENDT, the sublime Barbara Sukowa re-teams with director Margarethe von Trotta (VISION, ROSA LUXEMBURG) for a brilliant new 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 both Eichmann and the Jewish councils—introduced her now-famous concept “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 immersive, dramatic cinema. An official selection at the Toronto International and New York Jewish Film Festivals, HANNAH ARENDT also co-stars Klaus Pohl as philosopher Martin Heidegger, Nicolas Woodeson as New Yorker editor William Shawn, and two-time Oscar Nominee Janet McTeer (ALBERT NOBBS) as novelist Mary McCarthy.

Parking information:

—Parking's always free in the Belcourt's lot when you're attending a movie (and do note that meters in Hillsboro Village are free on weekends, because there are times the Belcourt lot is completely full). However, you will need to get a parking pass.

—If you buy your ticket online and choose the "print at home" option, you'll have a parking pass attached to your ticket.

—If you buy your ticket at the box office, the Belcourt will actually give you a pass you can put on your dashboard (so you don't have to go back to the paystation and enter a code).

"An outstanding cinematic portrait.... Trotta has made an extremely vivid cinematic essay, thrilling in its every minute, deeply moving in its seriousness and suitably unsettling." —Elke Schmitter, DER SPIEGEL (
