On this Reel Off Film Night we will be screening ‘Triumph off the Will’, the seminal propaganda film of the Nazi era, directed by Leni Riefenstahl. The film chronicles the Nazi Party Congress of 1934 and is still considered a masterpiece. It continues to influence a number of prominent directors.
This film night will be hosted by Abu Salahudeen, who studied Media at the University of Luton and was the Co-Founder and Director of Halaqah Media and Blackrunner Media. He is currently writing a book about Islam, politics and rights of people. His interest in ‘Triumph of the Will’ stemmed from the realization that many of the techniques used by the Nazis have been adopted in modern politics with devastating results.
