A trained artist born in Weimar, Ella Bergmann-Michel is one of those talented women that was systematically ignored in the history of art and the history of cinema. She produced art across a wide range of styles and techniques, but mostly experimenting with collage in painting, sculpture, photography, and film. Bergmann-Michel bravely walks the streets of Weimar with a camera in her hand, recording the gloomy atmosphere of looming fascism between 1931 and 1933. The documentaries and the footage that she filmed around this time not only keeps a register of the daily life under the pressures of the rising Nazi sentiments, but also claims filmmaking as a political act. While men with a movie camera always wrote the history and kept a register of human memory, women with a movie camera are noticeably absent, ignored, erased, forgotten. With Bergmann-Michel’s work getting increasingly more attention, come and enjoy the intimate poeticism and shocking bravery of the footage she recorded on the streets.
