MORITZ DANIEL OPPENHEIM – The First Jewish Painter (2016 | 96 min.)

LANGUAGE: English/Polish/Yiddish

Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, “the painter of the Rothschilds & the Rothschild of painters“, was not only the first Jewish artist with an academic background, but also an icon of Jewish emancipation in Germany. Young filmmaker Isabel Gathof searches out Oppenheim’s descendants and heritage in Germany, France and Israel, on the occasion of the world’s first monument built to the artist. Oppenheim was born in 1882 in Frankfurt am Main. He is often regarded as the first Jewish painter of the modern era. His work was informed by his cultural and religious roots at a time when many of his German Jewish contemporaries chose to convert to Christianity.

Guest Speaker: Director Isabel Gathof

After an apprenticeship at Saatchi & Saatchi Frankfurt as an advertising sales manager, Isabel studied at the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF München). In 2011 she formed her own production company FEINSHMEKER FILM. “Moritz Daniel Oppenheim“ is her fourth work as a director, fifth production with FEINSHMEKER FILM and first feature length documentary film.
