Margot Klausner (1970)


German-Israeli writer and filmmaker regarded as a pioneer of Israeli filmmaking. Klausner co-founded the first Israeli film studio, Israel Motion Picture Studios Herzliyyah Ltd (more widely known as Herzliya Studios or United Studios), with her husband Yehoshua Brandstaetter in 1949. Klausner served as chairman and president of the company until her death in 1975. Klausner was instrumental in the development of the Israeli film industry, and by 1974 Herzliya Studios (which operated under different names over the years) had produced 100 feature films, and thousands of advertisements, newsreels, documentaries, and satellite transmissions.

From the 1920s until her death in 1975, Klausner published numerous works on a variety of subjects in German, Hebrew, and English. Klausner founded the Israeli Parapsychological Society and published the monthly magazine Mysterious Worlds: A Journal of Parapsychology from 1968 to 1971.

Klausner's two children both entered the film industry. Her daughter Miriam Spielman ran Herzliya Studios after her death, and her son Amos Mokadi became an actor and producer. Klausner died in Tel Aviv, Israel on 12 November 1975 at age 70.
