Triumph of the Will (Triumph des Willens) was a Nazi-era propaganda film produced by Leni Riefenstahl (whom Goebels selected for her reputation for making quality films), to chronicle the 1934 Nazi Party Congress in Nuremburg.
The story goes that she was given a blank cheque to produce the best film money can buy at the time. And though the film is in black and white, we can't deny the quality of the cinematography, the camera angles, the integration of music and visual effects to produce the desired emotional reaction, presenting the Nazi Party in the best possible light.
Today, we continue to see military recruitment drives through various media, air shows being perhaps the most common example, with jet fighters flying in formation, airborn troopers presenting skydiving shows, and soldiers rapelling out of helicopters, that trigger the imaginations of young boys in the audience. We have army tattoos where young audiences get to see soldiers looking sharp and marching in perfect formation at the sound of inspirational music. We witness it through cadet corps as an alternative to the less militaristic boy scouts. And we see it again through hollywood films (The US Navy was involved in the production of the film Top Gun, and I wouldn't be surprised if other branches of the military have been involved in the production of other hollywood films that likewise portray them in a positive light that can potentially plant the seeds of future recruitment among young viewers).
You'll notice all of these parallels in Leni Riefenstahl's film, with women and children participating in the events, and the Nazi Youth being very much involved.
What parallels do you see between Leni Riefenstahl's film and military propaganda today?
