FOUR DAYS. WERA GOLDMAN
Direction: Ina Fuchs, Heide-Marie Härtel,
2006, 33 min
The edition “Four Days” is looking at the impact of the German-Jewish culture on the artistic life in Israel. What could those, who had to flee from the Nazi regime, contribute to their new home? What kind of immaterial goods, capacities and Arts did they bring in their luggage?
Wera Goldmann was born in Vienna in 1921. She began dancing as a young girl. In 1938 she emigrated to Palestine, where she danced in the company of Gertrud Kraus. Her life journey led her to Australia, India and back to Israel.
She became famous for her choreography and dance performance of the old Jewish legend “Dybbuk”. To this day, she is sharing her vast knowledge about dance with the young dancers of Israel, teaching them in the Arts. Wera Goldman is living in Tel Aviv.

Festival “Autumn of Dance”, Bremen 1999
Realisation: Hartmut Sebel
Editor: Heide-Marie Härtel
Co-Production: Tanz Bremen e.V.,
1999, 35 min.
A camera workshop of the , directed by Heide-Marie Härtel, used the opportunity of the Autumn of Dance in 1999 to exchange experiences about the making of documentaries.
Young journalists and film makers were able to experience that the documentation of dance has its own laws. A confrontation of the dancers’ movement on stage with the dynamics of the camera’s eye and the tripod’s position. This track was further followed in the workshop about the editing of dance videos in the context of the festival “30 years of dance theatre Bremen”.
Hartmut Sebel’s documentary presents a thematic contribution, reconstructing the festival’s progress and presenting interviews highlighting the organisers’ motivations.
This film does not pose as a traditional TV feature, but as a visual festival programme, allowing the audience to re-experience the festival without commentary and just by its imagery and textual information alone.
