About Triumph of the Will

Year Released:
The most famous propaganda film of all time, Leni Riefenstahl‘s chilling documentary of the Nazi Party Congress in 1934 Nuremberg helps one understand the Party’s influence and how Germany fell under Adolf Hitler’s spell. Hitler served as Executive Producer and his personal architect designed the Rally’s sets and managed much of the production, creating spectacle ripe for propaganda footage. As film critic Frank P. Tomasulo stated, “Hitler is cast as a veritable German Messiah who will save the nation, if only the citizenry will put its destiny in his hands.” In German language with English subtitles. (16mm presentation)
