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.

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' ...

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".

Watching the late, great Leni Riefenstahl's documentary film, Olympia. I guess it is to make up for not having watched much of the winter Olympics this year. LENI'S camera work is amazing. And seeing Jesse Owens race is a joy. Well worth watching if you haven't seen it.
Hey Rocky-o-la.. .I've just been perusing the Wiki entry for the Columbia Riots of '68.just as you confess to being paralyzed by the Leni Riefenstahl docu...the riots are referred to as the Columbia Protests so that's good enough for me...the Decade 60's...the Fab 4...the Columbia Protests and the Chicago 8.the Columbia 7 astronauts is that OTHER thing..to cap those massive events in knee jerk soundbytes is cute.. Hannakah ( 8 days).Christmas ( 12 days of...).the Year of Perfect Vision 2020...MARK RUDD is mentioned prominently and first in a NY Times yada about Columbia..the jammin' in motion.your dad escapes mercifully..;to be revealed later in closer inspection by people who really wanna get down with the era and how it spills into the children who come after...like you.there are NO women back then to speak of..politically riot worthy.Angela Davis comes later.campus wise...the FIRST one to leap to the fore 60's wise..is PATTI HEARST...and the SLA..the Symbionese Liberation Army..which was so-o-o-o-o- .. ...
What's the difference between Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, Victor Salvo, Leni Riefenstahl and the Marquis De Sade? So far as I can tell they are all artists who have committed heinous crimes who create work that can't be ignored. So that's that.
Media praises dead Pete Seeger, anti-American Communist: . It's pretty amusing that this Communist, for al...
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.
Reading about Leni Riefenstahl can so quickly dissolve into watching the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
If only Leni Riefenstahl was a Communist like Pete Seeger...
Just a reminder leni riefenstahl said her biggest regret was meeting Hitler. just as Seger "regretted" being a communist
Triumph of the Will is a 1935 film made by Leni Riefenstahl. It chronicles the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg, which was attended by more than 700,000...
Who's taken the Buzzfeed "Which Member of the Third Reich Are You?" quiz? I was hoping for Leni Riefenstahl but ended up getting Eva Braun.
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.
I will be dreaming of Lorde tonight she will take the form of a witch crow like Leni Riefenstahl upturning pre 1945 European political order
Rocky's good hearted and means well but has to be beaten with a stick figuratively speaking to get her attention held and carressed and rivited like Leni Riefenstahl the first time she saw Hitler...she wrote him a letter...wanted to meet him...he wrote her back..they met..he tried to get close..she says in the book,..her "Memoirs" that he pulled away cuz she was not encouraging him...but they are about to meet again on page one hundred something and I just woke up after Rocky called and wants to get more into "that period" as she has dismissed it all..the Holocaust and all cuz it's so horrible..and all that stuff..but now...being with me she has to get with it and has confessed.."I thot the vimeo Jesse Gallagher posted about Paul Williams ( "I'll Walk Away") was.kinda mean.." "Yes.mean mean mean..;.the Golden mean..I mean BUSINESS...Paul sells his soul to the devil for success in THIS world...all the effects of THIS world..." Rocky could see his conceit in the way he talks about receiving a Golden Globe.. ...
She liked your amazing work (how come she not...) and she commented your definition of her as 'modern Leni Riefenstahl'.
If Mao and Leni Riefenstahl had a lovechild, she would write anti-Christian propaganda on like this
