So Leni Riefenstahl is dead. A complicated and influential documentary maker. Helped to lock in Hitler’s power through influential filmmaking while refusing to cut Jesse Owens’ successes out of her work. Basically the founder of modern sports films, and the first one to use crazy camera angles and tracking the action of the games. Perhaps the ultimate “I’m just an artist” defense to all accusations that she participated in the Nazi horrors. And a brilliant filmmaker. So so complicated.
