Ella Bergmann-Michel: Documentary films 1931-1933

CHF 23.00 / EUR 21.00

Since 1920 artist, photographer, and filmmaker Ella Bergmann-Michel lived and worked at the «Schmelz», an old paint mill near Frankfurt on Main. With guests such as Kurt Schwitters and László Moholy-Nagy the house became an important locale for modern artists. Between 1931 and 1933 she made five documentary films that constitute a rare example of socially involved and equally artistic film. The DVD contains these five films, a documentary film about the artist and a comprehensive booklet with essays on Ella Bergmann-Michel's films.
