‘TRIUMPH OF THE WILL’ Analysis

After my August trip to Nuremberg and visiting ww2 sites, I’ve decided to manage a thoroughly detailed historical and movie analysis of the most well-known propaganda movie in history. Let’s deepen into the personality of Leni Riefenstahl, the historical features of the “Triumph of the Will”, analyze each of the 12 scenes in detail, plan by plan – speech by speech, as well as the movie techniques, behind the scenes story. I’ve used an extensive library on the subject and two weeks of work finalized in an article of 5000-words volume.
Please feel free to comment. Feedback inspirers me to travel, write and share thoughts.

when I visited Nuremberg , the fair city , I was told the old stadium was used by the youth to play bad folk music and smoke dope

Leni Riefenstahl made a great movie then surpassed by her "gods of the stadium "
she was unfairly attacked and denied her great achievement ( typical male chauvinism )
she was no more Nazi than 80% of the population and 99% of those with close contact with power

I recommend her photo book " the last of the Nuba " an extraordinary set of picture of Nubian bodies

It's an amazing film, but it's also pure Nazi propaganda (very much in accordance with the Nazi aesthetic in evidence at Nuremberg etc., a sort of political ritual or cultic display, but raised to a higher level).
