Leni Riefenstahl was undoubtedly one of the most creative women of the Twentieth Century.
From her early days dancing on Berlin’s stages, to becoming an actress and then producing her own films that attracted Hitler - she was always difficult and uncompromising in what she wanted to achieve. Her films of the
1934 Nuremburg Nazi rally and the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games were exceptional using techniques that were way ahead of their time and still used in documentaries today!

After the war she was ostracised and faced three Nazi tribunals - being cleared by all of them. She then went to live with a remote african tribe filming stunning documentaries. At 87 she learnt to scuba dive and filmed coral reefs. Over her hundred years, her legacy is fascinating, exciting, unbelievable and brought to life    in this extraordinary lecture, with many films clips, photographs and ephemera.
