Nerven by Robert Reinert( Visual )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 83 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 Using different fragments the Munich Film Museum was able to reconstruct this forgotten German classic; a unique historical document and a precursor of the 1920s expressionist cinema

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
