Description: "The ancient Icelandic word for intuition is 'innsæi,' but in Iceland it has multiple meanings. It can mean 'the sea within' which is the borderless nature of our inner world. It can mean 'to see within' which means to know yourself. And it can mean 'to see from the inside out' which is to have a strong inner compass to navigate your way in our ever-changing world ... InnSæi is a film like no other, and one that offers radical insights into how we think and sense the world today"--Container.

Adah Ushpiz, Ina Fichman, Hannah Arendt, Channel 8 (Television station : Israel), HSCC - Slutzky Communications
Description: The German-Jewish philosopher Hannah Arendt caused an uproar in the 1960s by coining the subversive concept of the "Banality of Evil" when referring to the trial of Adolph Eichmann, which she covered for the New Yorker magazine. Her private life was no less controversial thanks to her early love affair with the renowned German philosopher and Nazi supporter Martin Heidegger. This thought provoking and spirited documentary, with its abundance of archival materials, offers an intimate portrait of the whole of Arendt's life, traveling to places where she lived, worked, loved, and was betrayed, as she wrote about the open wounds of modern times.
