I have never seen any of her films, but there are some companies that look to sell them for 40 bucks and burn them off the computer. That is just my paranoia acting up. Many of those trashy scumbag companies are actually ripoffs though.

I picked up Triumph of the WIll off of amazon.com

It's my guess that many a WP type site will have burned dvds instead of the factory pressed...just my guess.

A great National Socialist filmmaker who recently died at the age of 101 years.

Her greatest masterpiece is "Triumph des Willens" ("The Triumph of the Will"), a documentary about the 1934 NSDAP congress in Nuremberg.

If at all possible, do yourself a favor and see it. :beer-smil

I cannot explain in words the magnitude of this masterpiece.

I remember that the first time I watched it I had shivers down my spine and tears in my eyes throughout the film. The sound of the drums names still haunts me sometimes.

The feeling that this movie creates is unspeakable, I can only describe it as metaphysical. What would I have given to be in that place at that time! ;)

I beg anyone who is interested in National Socialism to see this film. It is the most mystifying experience.

Leni Riefenstahl was a great artist and director, too bad she turned into such a hypocrite during the last days of her life.

Has anyone seen Hans Westmar?

Not a Riefenstahl film, but a story of Horst Wessel really. Recommended!

Leni's Rising Star (http://www.riefenstahl.org)

Leni Riefenstahl's work in film was by no means the only artistic endeavour that she pursued in her life — she was also a dancer, photographer, writer, SCUBA diver, and an all-'round adventurer, each of which she accomplished on a world-class scale — however, the focus of this web site is on her work in film (more specifically, feature films and documentaries). This is not simply because of the revolutionary achievements that she made in that area and the wondrous artistry and vision which her genius was able to bring forth upon the silver screen, but because it was the medium that she loved, the medium in which she herself was loved, which brought her to the heights of stardom, fame and acclaim all over Europe and all over the world — and yet which was also the ultimate cause of her fall from grace.

The website also hosts clips from several of Leni Riefenstahl's movies. I'll post some direct links to several of these fragments, ordered by movie. You may have to download Real Player (http://www.real.com/international/player/) to watch them. I particularly recommend Olympia.

Notice: some clips contain artistic nudity.
