Summary:
The career of filmmaker Riefenstahl is explored through interview, excerpts from her films, and print and photographic material from her own archive. Films excerpted include "Das Blaue Licht" (The Blue Light), "Triumph des Willens" (Triumph of the Will), "Olympia" and "Tiefland" --all of which she directed, and scenes from films in which she started her acting career. Riefenstahl talks about many of her experiences in casting, shooting, editing and scoring her film, as well as about her childhood, interest in the arts, early career as dancer, introduction to films by director Arnold Fanck, relationship to leaders of the Third Reich regime, her interest in the lives of "primitive" or "natural" peoples unspoiled by civilization, her struggles to regain control of her films after World War Two, and her journey to the Nuba people of Africa.
