Searching for Isolde

Searching for Isolde

Director Barbara Windtner sets out together with the dancer Ulrike Hager in search of the choreographer Isolde Klietmann, a dance pioneer in the interwar period in Linz. From Maribor to Linz and Vienna and then all the way to Argentina, they follow the traces of the unusual artist and teacher, who had to flee Austria together with her Jewish husband when the Nazis came to power. Isolde’s great-niece Monika Klietmann goes along on the journey, inspired by the idea to search for Isolde’s former pupils and bring her dance to life again.

Barbara Windtner, geboren 1980 in Steyr, studierte Theater-, Film- und Medienwissenschaft an der Universität Wien. Von 2008 bis 2012 lebte sie in Buenos Aires, Argentinien, wo sie unter anderem am SICA Film studierte und erste Kurzdokumentarfilme mit Iván Marín drehte. Zurzeit arbeitet sie gemeinsam mit Dina Borsch unter dem Namen „WanderSis Films“ in Wien. // Filme (Auswahl): VILLA FREUD (2010, doc), THE ARTIST INSIDE (2010, short doc), WASSERSTOFF (2014, short), BODY NOSTER (2015, short), AUF DER SUCHE NACH ISOLDE (Searching for Isolde, 2015, doc)
