Leni Riefenstahl's documentary of the 1934 Nuremburg Rally highlighted the unity and power of the Nazi Party to the German people and the world. Staged scenes, aerial shots of large crowds, and soaring music frame speeches by Adolph Hitler and other Nazi leaders in a cinematic format. Despite its subject matter, Riefenstahl's work stands as one of the most historically noteworthy propaganda films in the 20th century.
