Leni Riefenstahl might be one of the most famous of the early pioneers in filmmaking. Her fame was due to the remarkable talent she had for trying techniques that had never been done before as well as some of specific films she made. Most notably among these films are Triumph of the Will and Olympia. Both are propaganda films that glorify the Nazis, Hitler, Aryan man's superiority and the grandeur of the Nazi party. She has claimed she was never political and that she was not aware of the effects Triumph of the Will would produce. Triumph of the Will is considered a classic and any serious student of cinema would study it seriously.
