The infamous propaganda film of the 1935 Nazi Party rally in Nuremberg, Germany.
Black & White/Sound, 1935
114 minutes (10,198 feet)
35mm/1:1.33 aspect ratio
he film of the Sixth Party Rally of the National Socialists, which took place from September 4th to September 10th, 1934, in Nuremberg. This was Leni Riefenstahl\'s second ?ó∩??∩?? and only full-length ?ó∩??∩?? film for the National Socialist Party (NSDAP), and as an award-winning masterpiece of camerawork, direction and editing, it is widely agreed by virtually every film critic to be the greatest propaganda film of all time. As with the two other, shorter films which she did for the NSDAP, Der Sieg des Glaubens (1933) and the later Tag der Freiheit! ?ó∩??∩?? Unsere Wehrmacht! (1935), unlike the typical propaganda films put out by the Nazi party during that period, Triumph des Willens contains no running commentary and thus could technically rather be considered to be a documentary film, and with its style perhaps even an art film. However, the propagandistic political value of this film in promoting Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party is also clearly undeniable, its effect on the people of Germany and, indeed, the entire world is a matter of record and history, and in that regard it may very well be perhaps the most significant, most influential ?ó∩??∩?? and certainly the most infamously controversial ?ó∩??∩?? film of the 20th century.
