Synopsis

Leni Riefenstahl is a controversial figure in the world of film. She is remembered as one of few female filmmakers during the 1920s and also as Adolf Hitler’s go-to filmmaker during his violent dictatorship. This investigative documentary looks at the beginnings of Riefenstahl’s career in the film industry as an actress and collaborator of Arnold Fanck, a German director renowned for his cinematic mountain films, shot in extreme landscapes. Archive footage and interviews with close relatives and film historians discuss how the two influenced each other’s work and the challenges they faced while filming SOS Eisberg, considered at the time to be the riskiest and most expensive film project in history. The documentary also explores Riefenstahl relationship with Hitler and the creation of perhaps the most famous propaganda film of all time, Triumph of the Will . Providing a close look at early filmmaking, this documentary is a useful introduction to the topic of auteurism and key filmmakers in the complicated history of film.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
