The Wonderful, Horrible Life of Leni Riefenstahl
Ray Müller, 1993

Classics

Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.

We’re seizing the opportunity presented by two recent—and widely reviewed—biographies of German filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl to screen this incredible look at the director of Triumph of the Will (1935) and Olympia (1938).

Riefenstahl was perhaps the most accomplished, and definitely the most reviled, woman filmmaker in cinema history, and the film marks the first time she ever addressed her past, tainted by accusations of collusion with the Nazis, on camera. (181 mins., 35mm)
