The wonderful, horrible life of Leni Riefenstahl ( Visual )
33 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 916 libraries worldwide
At the heart of this film is the question of whether Leni Riefenstahl was a Nazi, as her detractors claim, or whether she was the victim of society-- a naive, young woman who made Triumph des Willens on assignment, and simply did a very good job. This film does not judge, and Riefenstahl (a fiesty 90 during production) is genuine in her protest. Or has the passage of 50-plus years simply rewritten history in her mind? Viewers must judge for themselves.

5 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in German and English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
It seems that Leni Riefenstahl cooperated with the filmmaker Ray Muller in order to present, at 90, her view of her life and work and, more importantly, to answer her critics. As such this is not an objective analysis of her films and the available evidence about their making. It is a portrait of a woman who, in Triumph of the Will, applied her remarkable ability and will to the production of a masterpiece of ideologically-charged filmmaking overtly designed as propaganda. Muller's film is generously punctuated with pristine footage from Riefenstahl's 'mountain' films with Dr. Arnold Fanck, her films of the Nazi period and her African and undersea projects. The German title translates as The Power of the Image.

In the early 1970s, Riefenstahl lived among the Nuba in Sudan. This documentary records her return to these tribes thirty years later. Juxtaposing footage of her first visits to the Nuba in the 1970s with the reality of today, the documentary also records the decline of a once proud people, as well as Riefenstahl's grief over the loss of many of her friends from the happiest period of her life.
