Nerven by Robert Reinert ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Theatralisch aufgefächerter Untergang einer Familie, die sich nach einer Reihe von Katastrophen auflöst und deren Mitglieder dem Wahnsinn anheim fallen. Die sorgfältig rekonstruierte Fassung eines lange verschollenen Stummfilms, der durch seine expressionistische Formsprache und seine Experimentierfreude für sich einnimmt. Die überbordende Geschichte findet jedoch zu keiner Einheit und erfordert durch sein zeitgenössisches Pathos auch ein dem Sujet aufgeschlossenes Publikum. [film-dienst]

Nerven Nerves by Robert Reinert ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Writer, producer, director Robert Reinert tries to capture the nervous epidemic caused by war and misery which drives people mad. His portrait of the life in 1919 Germany, filmed on location in Munich, describes the cases of different people from all levels of society. Factory owner Roloff loses his mind in view of catastrophes and social disturbances. Teacher John is the hero of the masses. Marja turns into a radical revolutionary. Using different fragments the Munich Film Museum was able to reconstruct this forgotten German classic; a unique historical document and a precursor of the 1920s expressionist cinema
Awodah ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and Hebrew and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Without narration, this film documents the pioneering labors of early Jewish settlers in Palestine in the 1930s as they build a new homeland. The film records the technological and agricultural accomplishments of the pioneers and extols the idea of a socialist Jewish state. Footage includes shots taken at the Jaffa port and on various kibbutzim of the time. Director Lerski's expressive style creates an almost mythic image of the Jew in Palestine, toiling and triumphing amidst the sweeping desert landscape

The film follows the path of one boy, Benjamin, a traumatised Holocaust survivor, as he arrives and slowly becomes part of the Ben Shemen children's village (where the film was shot on location). The film deals with the integration of survivors into Israeli society in the late 1940's, illustrates the agriculture of the time and emphasises the redemptive power of the collective and the curative power of music
Avodah Awodah ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This landmark documentary celebrates the pioneering labors of early Jewish settlers in Palestine. With striking visual compositions and a remarkable soundtrack by the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, the film records the technological and agricultural accomphishments of the pioneers and extols the idea of a socialist Jewish state. Footage includes shots taken at the Jaffa port, in Tel Aviv, and on various kibbutzim of the time; Strasbourg-born director Lerski's expressive style creates an almost mythic image of the Jew in Palestine, toiling and triumphing amidst the sweeping desert landscape." -- container
