THE TRIAL of Adolf Eichmann, one of the major organisers of the Holocaust, is the subject of the film The Specialist, which will be screened in NUI Galway’s Huston School of Film & Digital Media on Monday February 23 at 6.30pm,
Made by Israeli director Eyal Sivan in 1994 and inspired by Hannah Arendt’s book, Eichmann in Jerusalem, The Specialist was constructed from more than 350 hours of archive recordings from the 1961 trial in Jerusalem. Sivan is a political filmmaker whose work deals with political crime; the political use of memory; the ethics of documentary filmmaking; and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The screening is part of the ‘Reading through Institutions’ - A Para-Institution Project event. See www.parainstitution.ie All are welcome.
