Olympia : the film of the XI Olympic Games : Berlin, 1936 by Leni Riefenstahl( Visual )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentazione vasta e artistica dei grandi giochi olimpici internazionali svoltisi a Berlino dall'1 al 16 agosto del 1936, fatta su commissione del Comitato Olimpico Internazionale (IOC). Dalla corsa, che ha recato al grande stadio Olimpionico di Berlino la fiaccola accesa in Grecia, si passa poi alla descrizione delle più importanti gare ginniche. Sono intercalate notazioni di folla e personalità che assistono alle gare: Hitler che dichiara aperti i giochi, il principe ereditario Umberto di Savoia che saluta la squadra italiana, ecc. Diviso in due parti, una di 126' e l'altra di 96', da documentario sportivo si è trasformato in un'opera di propaganda del nazismo e dei suoi valori. Tuttavia, per la bellezza delle riprese e il montaggio, è considerato uno dei più bei documentari sportivi del '900

Sprengbagger 1010( Visual )

3 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein visionärer Ingenieur entwickelt einen gigantischen Bagger, der gewaltige Mengen von Braunkohle in kürzester Zeit fördern kann, stellt das Projekt jedoch auf Bitten einer Jugendfreundin zurück, um es wenig später aus Karrieredenken erneut in Angriff zu nehmen. Doch der Preis des Erfolges ist hoch: Bei einer der Sprengungen kommt seine Freundin ums Lebens. Einer der letzten deutschen Stummfilme, der nahezu prophetisch von einer großflächigen Umweltzerstörung und ihren Auswirkungen auf die Menschen handelt. Der Film, eine Mischung aus Industriefilm und Melodram, spielt im sächsischen Tagebaugebiet und bezieht die imposante Kulisse der Leuna-Werke eindrucksvoll in seine Handlung ein. Die ursprüngliche Musik des Films, eine Partitur des Schönberg-Schülers Walter Gronostays, wurde von Bernd Thewes neu eingerichtet und eingespielt. [film-dienst]
Olympia pt. 2, festival of beauty( Visual )

3 editions published in 1938 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Produced by Leni Riefenstahl as a celebration of the olympic ideal and the Third Reich, Riefenstahl shot one and half million feet of film and spent 18 months in the editing room to create this record of the Berlin Olympic games. This documentary was produced at the specific request of Adolph Hitler as the Third Reich's official record of the XI Olympic Games held in Germany in 1936. Although controversial for its ties to, and representation of National Socialism, this film is considered by many to be a brilliant and ground-breaking sports documentary. Leni Riefenstahl maintains that the film contained no propaganda or political content and that she had many difficulties working with Dr. Goebbels during the production of the film. Riefenstahl made a film that celebrates the human body by combining the poetry of bodies in motion with close-ups of athletes in the heat of competition. Part I, "The Festival of the People," includes the carrying of the flame from Greece, the lighting of the torch and the track-and-field events where American runner Jessie Owens won an unprecedented four gold medals. Part II, Festival of Beauty, focuses on the "pure" beauty of the body and movement. Five years after this film was made the German army retraced the route that the olympic torch had traveled from Athens, invading Greece in 1941

Olimpia( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Il film è un documentario in due parti sui Giochi Olimpici di Berlino del 1936, desiderati ardentemente da Hitler per dichiarare al mondo la superiorità della razza ariana, anche se poi lo stesso Hitler e soprattutto Goebbels, ministro della propaganda, ebbero da ridire per il troppo spazio offerto a Jesse Owens, un nero afroamericano indiscusso protagonista delle Olimpiadi. Per girarlo la Riefensthal ebbe a disposizione mezzi straordinari. Ne risultò un laboriosissimo montaggio che richiese più di diciotto mesi. Osteggiato tuttora da molti per il suo passato, in realtà il film è così bello e cinematograficamente valido che riesce ad annullare ogni riserva sulla sua origine e sul suo scopo primario
