While she never actually joined the Nazi Party, as the creator of the single most effective propaganda film ever made, TRIUMPH OF THE WILL, Riefenstahl has spent much of her life trying to live down her association with the Third Reich. Her personal relationship with Hitler is still in question. Feisty and charismatic at 91, Riefenstahl revisits the landmarks of her turbulent life - from her beginnings as a daredevil actress in German "mountain films" to her direction of such stunning narratives as THE BLUE LIGHT and TIEFLAND, to her infamous, brilliant documentaries TRIUMPH OF THE WILL and OLYMPIA, to her anthropological photographs and home movies of the now extinct Nuba tribes in Africa.

Marseille won the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds as well as the Italian Gold Medal for Bravery, which was awarded only to three men in WWII.
