Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph des Willens is not only the greatest propaganda film ever made, it is a film for which a sense of informed historical context continues to be a major problem. This film recorded the annual Nazi Party Congress at historic Nuremberg in September 1934 and glorified Adolf Hitler. The film's sense of spectacle made it a visual icon to Nazism. The materials included in this collection are an attempt to place the film in its proper historical context by providing students of film and propaganda with a substantial amount of material-drawn from many sources-concerning the making of Triumph des Willens.
