Hannah Arendt (Germany 2012)

Hannah Arendt is a portrait of the genius who shook the world with her discovery of "the banality of evil." After attending the trial of notorious Nazi Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem, Arendt dares to write about the Holocaust in a shocking way that instantly provokes a scandal.

Giraffada (France, Germany, Italy, Palestine 2013)

Yacine is the veterinarian for the only remaining zoo in the Palestinian West Bank. He lives alone with his 10-year-old son, Ziad, who has a special bond with the zoo's two giraffes: he seems to be the only one able to communicate with them. After an air raid on the region, the male giraffe dies, and its mate, Rita, won't survive unless the veterinarian can find her a new companion. When another male is located at a zoo in Tel Aviv, the story begins to move towards its memorable conclusion.
