The Wonderful, Horrible Life of Leni Riefenstahl
First screened in Summer 1996
Director: Ray Müller. Documentary about the notorious German actress, director, and ambiguously conscious propagandist.
Film takes its stand without reducing the ever-growing mystery of this singular woman
Inconclusive, even on the point of whether Riefenstahl at this point is over-invested object of emphasis, yet totally fascinating. Politically edgy. Valuable for the archive.
