Synopsis

Hannah Arendt's Little Theater by Marion Muller-Colard

Hannah Arendt is not at all keen to build an edifice of ideas or to develop abstract concepts. Rather, she descends into the arena herself! To enter the scene of her little theater means to take matters into her own hands, take responsibility, to act. In short: Thinking is acting - it has to do with the real world! While about to finish her last book, the philosopher Hannah Arendt is disturbed by her stubborn alter ego, 9-year-old Little Hannah. Reluctantly, the old woman lets herself drag out onto the streets of New York and into constant conversation by the inquisitive little girl. They enter a little theatre, and together they watch mankind, society, politics, power evolve - and they also experience the role of Evil (in the person of a wolf and of numerous wooden puppets) and its counterpart: insubordination. Yet even in the blackest moments in history, a new beginning is possible, when people get together to take action and to turn things around: as in the name H-A-N-N-A-H, a palindrome that reads the same backward and forward.
