Abstract of the presentation by Eyal Sivan, University of East London, at the conference on "Filming the Eichmann Trial," February 22-23, 2009
Sivan discusses the relation between archival material, memory, and its representation through the Eichmann trial filming and in relation to his own film work, The Specialist. Sivan, whose film explicitly draws on Hannah Arendt's book, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, also discusses the controversy that his film continues to provoke.
