Leni Riefenstahl’s classic piece of historical filmmaking, filmed during the 1934 Nazi Party Rally in Nuremberg, Germany, is considered by many to be one of the most important and controversial films ever made.

The film, realized by Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s Reich Minister for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda, was created to influence all of Germany to support the “power” of the Nazi Party. All during World War II, in every theatre in Germany, either part of, or all of, TRIUMPH OF THE WILL was shown.

An historically significant and, at times, horrifyingly manipulative exercise in propaganda for the Nazi regime, TRUMPH OF THE WILL continues to be controversial over seventy years after its original release. This historical document has been unavailable in German for decades. Until her death in 2003, Riefenstahl was under fire for her personal relationship with Adolph Hitler, spending her life in the shadow of collaborating with the Nazi Party.
