This is a true Story about me In memoriam.The 40th & 50th With Christel Kreisköther (13 Fotos) In memoriam.Photograph: Albert Oskar Schattmann (born February 2, 1891, died; † 30 December 1949 in Berlin) was a German cinematographer. In 1936 he was one of several dozen image surgeons who were for Leni Riefenstahl's Olympia two-part film behind the camera. Christel Kreisköther (born December, 1930, died; † 28 December 2004 in Berlin) life My live based on a true story, i beginn in summer of 1944, it has been a beautiful live in Muldenwiese Ostpreußen ( Kaliningrad ). In the summer of 1944 the russians came to us, open the door and shoot with machinepistols my mother down.A General stoped the shoots. I was captured with my brother, my father was not at home, he works on the field. Days befor the russians came to us: In the fall of 1944, the county Gumbinnen was the goal of the Russian attacks.

So Obama plans to over ride congress to begin work on streets and bridges and increase min wage? Sounds wonderful; however, he sounds like one of those inspiring speeches from Leni Riefenstahl, 1935 documentary "Triumph of the Will". Word for word Obama sounds like Hitler ranting about the social nationalist's goal. Check out the film and tell me it's not the same words.
The new propaganda is liberal. The new slavery is digital. 14 March 2013 by John Pilger What is modern propaganda? For many, it is the lies of a totalitarian state. In the 1970s, I met Leni Riefenstahl and asked her about her epic films that glorified the Nazis. Using revolutionary camera and lighting techniques, she produced a documentary form that mesmerized Germans; her 'Triumph of the Will' cast Hitler's spell. She told me that the "messages" of her films were dependent not on "orders from above," but on the "submissive void" of the German public. Did that include the liberal, educated bourgeoisie? "Everyone," she said. Today, we prefer to believe that there is no submissive void. "Choice" is ubiquitous. Phones are "platforms" that launch every half-thought. There is Google from outer space if you need it. Caressed like rosary beads, the precious devices are borne heads-down, relentlessly monitored and prioritised. Their dominant theme is the self. Me. My needs. Riefenstahl's submissive void is today' ...
Leni Riefenstahl in her own words: "We have lost the war."

I guess Leni Riefenstahl is his videographer.
Am I the only one who hates "Forrest Gump"? Even if fairly well made, it's actually a piece of insipid and reprehensible propaganda against the value of human intelligence, a movie that lies about the years of the peace movement and what liberalism gave us. At the film's end, Gump's running across the country pushes forward the nonsense that the conservative (Republican) way is right and will return to blow away the progressive advances. It's a damned lie, and the film is nearly as mendacious as Leni Riefenstahl's Nazi commercial, "Triumph of the Will".
They don't call me Leni Riefenstahl for nothing 😎

Oh boy, the State of the Union address is tonight. I can't wait to see what Leni Riefenstahl does with the footage.
If only Riefenstahl had been a communist like Pete Seeger :
DER HEILIGE BERG ("The Holy Mountain"; Arnold Fanck, 1926). The time has been a good friend of Dr. Arnold Fanck, the German director who in the Twenties started, with his "The Holy Mountain", that type of film (or perhaps "genre") known as "Bergfilme" ("Mountainfilm"). Indeed although the poor dramatic script (centered on a very usual love triangle) and the not remarkable performances of its main actors, the stunning, surprising, magnificent quality of its cinematography have contributed to revaluate this movie that I consider a must-to-see by all silent cinema lovers. Nevermore the mountains are been showed in such magnificent way (and without cinematic tricks) and I suggest its vision how a visual experience and a way to know which extent of technical and visual mastery the German cinema reached in the Twenties. Two of the main characters are the Tyroler highlander Luis Trenker (then movie director) and Leni Riefenstahl at the beginning of her distinctive (and often blamed) career as filmmaker. r.m.

It's really hard to form an opinion on "Das Blaue Licht" on 2 hours of sleep and a chicken sandwich eight hours ago. Ergo, my opinions are that Leni Riefenstahl was pretty and Germany has too many mountains.

American Southwest Theater Company at NMSU Theater Arts presents “Aunt Raini” at the Center for the Arts on the NMSU campus.  Written by department head Tom Smith, the production is directed by Mark Medoff and features professional guest artist Stephanie Monday in the title role. Performances run February 21 to March 9.      The play centers on Katherine, a successful gallery owner who must decide what to do when controversial, though historically significant, art work is left to her by her aunt.         “The show had a reading at a professional theatre in Boca Raton, its premiere at the Black Box Theatre in Las Cruces in 2006, and a production at SUNY-Fredonia,” details playwright Smith. “Each production was dramatically different because the play itself was still in development.  What audiences will see here is what I consider the final version of the script, the culmination of all of those other productions.”   Because the drama is loosely based on the career of Leni Riefenstahl ...

The tehnical aspects like sound mixing ,camera dynamics and editing is almost perfect ,and given a huge canvas and an expensive set up this is a remarkable achievement in cinema from planning to execution ,which all are immaculately rendered by debut director -Bilal Lashari . The movie discusses the sub cultures in Pak that have evolved in last 3 decades ,it mirrors the truth about the love that ordinary people bear for their land and shockingly it doesnt sermonise or propagate unlike the bolly hollywood equivalents like ARGO etc - The team deliver a sophisticated yet realistic product that can be watched several times as its gripping ...

Later, he would state,[citation needed] “ If anybody asked me which was the best match that I played in, I will unhesitatingly say that it was the 1933 Beighton Cup final between Calcutta Customs and Jhansi Heroes. Calcutta Customs was a great side those days; they had Shaukat Ali, Asad Ali, Claude Deefholts, Seaman, Mohsin, and many others who were then in the first flight of Indian hockey. I had a very young side. Besides my brother Roop Singh, and Ismail, who played for the Great Indian Peninsular Railway in Mumbai, I had no other really great player in the team. But I had a team which was determined to do or die. It was a great match, full of thrills, and it was just opportunism that gave us the victory. Customs were pressing hard and our goal . ...

How do I always end up on the Wikipedia page for Leni Riefenstahl
Every once in a long while, against my better judgement, I take a moment to read the comments posted at Yahoo. Since Murdoch bought Yahoo, the site has become almost worthless as a source for news. As a matter of fact, it's just a *** shame that Leni Riefenstahl is no longer around to administer the site. I keep hearing the polling organizations say that hardcore conservatives (i.e. neofascists) account for less than ten percent of the American electorate. Why is it, then, that they manage to troll just about every website currently in existence? Is this part of their training? Is there a place where they go, like some sort of Hitler Youth camp, where they learn how to troll? I'd give a war pension to know.

Walt Disney: 7 Things You Didn’t Know About the Man & the Institution By Micah White For almost 100 years, the name Walt Disney has been so synonymous with animated films, television channels, and child-friendly theme parks it’s easy to forget that, at one time, the moniker referred to an actual person. Born in 1901, Walter Elias “Walt” Disney grew to be one of America’s most preeminent business tycoons by the time he died in 1966. Within this short time, he became a beloved animator, producer, director, screenwriter, and voice actor (who happens to have more Academy Awards and nominations than anyone else in history). Not too bad for a cartoonist from Chicago. Although Walt Disney died almost 40 years ago, the mass media stronghold of his company remains as strong as ever. The voluminous canon of Walt Disney Studios, not to mention the work of all of its subsidiaries, often overshadows the life of its founder. Soon, however, the voice of Walt Disney himself will be pumped into movie theaters th ...

Walt Disney a racist? Well he did turn away hippies.. :'( 7.These rumors were, and still are, hard to dispel.

From 'Papering the Cracks' : "Parenthetically, it is worth drawing brief attention here to John Milius’ Conan the Barbarian, perhaps the only one of these s fantasy films to dispense with a liberal cloak, parading its Fascism shamelessly in instantly recognizable popular signifiers: it opens with a quotation from Nietzsche, has the spirit of its dead heroine leap to the rescue at the climax as a Wagnerian Valkyrie, and in between unabashedly celebrates the Aryan male physique with a singlemindedness that would have delighted Leni Riefenstahl. Its token *** is dispatched with a kick in the groin, and its arch-villain is black. There is an attempt, it is true, to project Fascism on to him (so that he can be allotted the most gruesome of the film’s many grisly deaths), but it is difficult to imagine a more transparent act of displacement."

Documentary Filmmaking Contrary to narrative cinema, which tells stories that are usually pure fabrications of someone’s imagination, documentary filmmaking is concerned with the exposure and analyses of real facts and historical events. Subjects of documentaries can be the hunting of endangered species, the presidential campaign of Barack Obama, and the downfall of the Nazi regime. Even though documentary cinema explores actualities, not all documentaries present the absolute truth a hundred percent of the time. Filmmakers, like any other artists, are both privileged and burdened by the power of manipulation. As such, they are blessed and cursed by the possibility to bend the truth. While some directors choose to simply broadcast occurrences, like Jacques Perrin with Winged Migration, others prefer to judge them, like Michael Moore with Bowling for Columbine. Still others work to alienate an audience, like Leni Riefenstahl with her Triumph of the Will, a famous propaganda movie. Despite their different ...
CAPTAIN PHILLIPS 'Captain Phillips' is a true story type movie based on the book ‘A Captain’s duty: Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. I think we can safely assume the ‘with’ means 'ghost-written by Stephen Talty who was hooked up by the publishers who saw a great opportunity for a patriotic airport book and potential movie tie-in'. It is one of those realistic documentary style Paul Greengrass actioners which means it exists in a world that bears a much closer relationship to the one we inhabit on a day to day basis than most films that feature bad guys with AK47’s and muscular men jumping out of planes. This makes for a more gripping film but it also left me with a bit of a bad taste in my mouth and a desire to find out a little more about the background. As far as I can tell these are the rough historic details: Four young Somali lads (aged 16 – 19) hijacked a big container ship of the coast of Somali. The crew hid from them, then captured one of ...

Leni Riefenstahl made films demonizing the disabled, too. Some bill maher fans would call that comedy, sadly. Not very humanitarian.
is reading an excellent text by the late, great, Peter Wollen entitled 'Tales of Total Art and Dreams of the Total Museum' where he convincingly connects Dada and Fascism, Hugo Ball's Cabaret Voltaire of 1916 with Hitler's Berlin Olympiad of 1936: Leni Riefenstahl via Mary Wigman and Rudolf von Laban. I wonder whether the founders and namers of the excellent London dance institute, the Laban Centre, knew, in Wollen's words, that the 'Dance Olympiad was placed under the direction of Laban, who had risen to an authoritative position in the Nazi regime, as head of the German Tanzbuhne, an official organisation sponsored by Goebbels and the nazi Ministry of Culture'.

A new piece of political jargon, to go along with "premature anti-fascists" (people from the left who supported the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War), and "rootless cosmopolitans" (the Stalinists' term for Jews), I now learn that some think that the regime of Metaxa in Greece in the 30s was an example of "mimetic fascistisation," which I guess means they were Wannabee Fascists. Tell that to the leftists sent to the islands and Akronauplio. Found it in an otherwise interesting article on "Nelly's" (Elli Sougioultzogloue-Seiradari), and influential photographer in Athens close to the regime and influenced by Nazi artistic trends, and people like Leni Riefenstahl. I can't think how to put this into appropriately awful Greek jargon

Carrie nominates "The Great Dictator" (1940), a humanist cry from the heart disguised as political satire (not to mention a tack-sharp spoof of Leni Riefenstahl's "Triumph of the Will." Chaplin has a double role as a Jewish barber and the antisemitic dictator, Adenoid Hynkel (think Hitler). In this story of mistaken identity, the barber is recovering from amnesia and does not know that his nation is now under the sign of the double-cross, that Jews are persecuted, and that the ruler is Hynkel to whom he bears a "coincidental resemblance." When the humble barber is mistaken for the megalomanic -- and vice-versa -- the former seizes the chance to make positive political change, puncturing the puffed-up Hynkel. Full of magical moments, including a sequence where the dictator dances with an inflatable globe, the film -- conceived in 1938 -- got viewers to laugh at the Fuhrer. Realizing that taking on Chaplin may be a fool’s effort, Glen nominates “M*A*S*H” (1970), director Robert Altman’s coming-ou .. ...
I was on a panel that answered questions about improvisation yesterday. The panel was a little stumped by the question, "What do you mean by the game in the scene?" and eventually I said words to the effect of, "In short form improv, like Whose Line Is It Anyway?, the rules of the game are explained by a host or caller in the introduction. By adhering to the rules of the game, the players able to create a scene. In a spot improv or (more commonly) in long form, such a scene in a Harold, the game is a tacit agreement, often discovered by accident, between the improvisers which informs what is compelling about the improvisation and which grows and develops as the scene progresses. In a long form, the rules of the game might not be fully established until the game is over, and, in the case of the Harold or other long form, one or more games might be subgames of an ubergame." Someone else probably said that more succinctly, but I think I can work with it. Copyright 2013, all rights reserved. LOL.

It is not uncommon for politicians on both the left and right to compare whomever they are abjuring to Hitler. After watching part 1 of a 1993 documentary about the controversial Leni Riefenstahl and watching clips from Triumph of the Will, I am reminded that no, NOBODY before or since , compares to hitler,goebbels, et al. Fatuous comparisons to this era serves no cause and no body.

Bites: 15 minute talks by OU experts The following talks are part of the Festival’s Bites presentations - a collection of 15 minute talks which provide the audience with an intense, whistle-stop tour through the needs-to-know of the topic.   A Plan for a new world: Nazi architecture and urban planning, by Dr Katy Layton-Jones (Saturday 1:00pm). In early May 1945, the Russian army entered a shattered Berlin. The grand edifices of Hitler's capital city lay scarred and obscured by smoke. This dystopian vista was the antithesis of the grandiose World Capital envisaged by the Führer a mere six years earlier. Examining both individual buildings and the grand urban plan as a whole, this talk explores Hitler's vision for a Welthaupstadt Germania (World Capital Germania) and its implications for the physical and social fabric of Europe.   The uncomfortable and compelling masterpieces of Leni Riefenstahl: Documentary?

Argo is a propaganda film. Like the films of Nazi publicist Leni Riefenstahl, it is well-made. Like those of Riefenstahl, it glorifies a murderous criminal organization.
I was in Sundance and an African-American filmmaker chided me -- gently -- for comparing Katheryn Bigelow to Leni Riefenstahl. And I wondered -- but did not say -- how would you feel about a contemporary film -- celebrated by the film establishment -- that celebrated lynching, or at least cast it as a necessary evil or a tough choice that sometimes the US government or local government might have to take for the greater good of the community? Remember that Southern towns FELT it was good for their security to lynch 'troublemakers'...
so Argo won. it really should be a "fictional" tale for the massive mistakes it makes in telling the history of the conflict and region. but good shill, Ben, good job helping to rewrite history and popular opinion before we go to war with Iran. good job buddy! you and Leni Riefenstahl would have had a BALL chilling at the Oscars together.
