Triumph of the Will

Triumph of the Will (Triumph des Willens) is a propaganda film by the German filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl, documenting the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg.

The film shows much footage of Nazi soldiers marching to melodious major key[?] classical music, then later singing, playing, and cooking; the film also includes soundbites from speeches given by various advisors to Adolf Hitler, and portions of a speech by Hitler himself. The film tries to show how the german people pledges its loyalty to the person of Hitler but becomes somewhat disorienting when Hitler is praised as an "epitome of altruism" and later informs the assembled thousands that he is on a God-given mission.
