L'œil du IIIe Reich : Walter Frentz, le photographe de Hitler( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quand la photographie se met au service de la barbarie. Préface de Fabrice d'Almeida. Disons les choses clairement : il faut voir pour essayer de comprendre. Il n'y a donc ni complaisance ni fascination malsaine dans ces 300 photographies prises parmi les 20 000 réalisées par Walter Frentz entre 1930 et 1945. Celles-ci sont le produit d'un contrat avec un commanditaire, Hitler, dans lequel sont suggérés les thèmes, la forme, les couleurs, bref, un projet esthétique qui participe de la mise en scène du régime nazi et de ses dignitaires. C'est pourquoi ce livre est bâti sur un choix, celui de présenter le parcours complexe du nazisme, en particulier pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Outre la préface de Fabrice d'Almeida, dont les travaux (en particulier La Vie mondaine sous le nazisme) font autorité, huit spécialistes allemands corrigent les lacunes de la mémoire de Frentz, dévoilent ses préjugés, son aveuglement et son zèle. Ces contributions replacent son travail dans sa dimension propagandiste. Textes et images aident ainsi à saisir un milieu, à en questionner les habitudes et les faux-semblants. Aussi ce livre pèse lourd pour qui cherche à comprendre l'histoire du temps présent. Il présente un projet visuel qui s'inscrit dans le rapport entre formes artistiques et fabrication du sujet politique. C'est pourquoi la forme née de ce projet idéologique constitue une source pour tenter de comprendre comment des criminels ont pu passer à l'acte."

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

2 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in German and held by 11 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

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

Triumph of the will by Leni Riefenstahl( Visual )

2 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documental de corte propagandístico sobre el congreso del partido Nazi en Nuremberg en la Alemania de 1934. A pesar de su insuperable valor artístico, la clara exaltación de la raza aria a lo largo de toda la cinta provocó que la autora Riefenstahl fuera, tras el fin de la II Guerra Mundial, criticada e ignorada de por vida. Su mejor publicidad en su momento - y la peor para el resto de su vida - la hizo el propio Adolf Hitler, que alabó el documental (definido como "de nazis, para nazis, sobre nazis") como una "incomparable glorificación del poder y la belleza de nuestro movimiento". Verlo hoy sabiendo lo que supuso el nacionalsocialismo en la década siguiente hiela la sangre. Repudiable por el ominoso mensaje que escondía tanto orden y armonía, puede afirmarse sin embargo que es el mejor documental de propaganda jamás rodado
