The Banality of Love [הבנאליות של האהבה]

The complex love story between Hannah Arendt and Martin Heidegger. The play is set in 1920 when Arendt and Heidegger are young, during their affair, and in the “present” 1975, where a young Israeli student is interviewing a much older Arendt for the archive of the Hebrew University. During the interview Arendt exposes more than the known facts. Heidegger was Ardent's professor, and was a married man. He was also a known Nazi supporter. After the war, Arendt reconnects with Heidegger.
