New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael called Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will and Olympia "the two greatest films ever directed by a woman." This praise from a Jewish writer is even more impressive in light of the fact that both movies were propaganda films for Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime. In Sarah Greenman's inventive new multimedia play Leni, Riefenstahl's older and younger selves collaborate to edit a film about the director's career, cutting and reshooting scenes from her life in search of the beauty she tried to create in her work. This story of narcissism, denial and the extent of artistic responsibility is coming to the Aurora Theatre Company in Berkeley.
