She looks at individual films, producers, writers, and actors, and shows how the values of the wide American community and those of the Jewish community are reflected in their work.Films such as "Ben Hur", "The Pawn Broker", "The Jazz Singer" or "The diary Of Anne Frank," to name a few ,are examined ISBN: 0253145007 ID2: 27 More info

She is reputed to have danced nude for the Fuhrer. She is linked to Goebbels, Striecher, Borman, and other evil luminaries of the Nazi party. After the war, she was investigated by the Nuremburg Commission, and found innocent; she had never been a Party member. Yet Leni's cinema helped to create the myth of Nazi supremacy; her sense of drama and destiny, her imagery, mesmerized Germany during Hitler's climb to power. Was she responsible? Was she conscious of the political meaning of her work? Or was she a naive opportunist, an incomparable technician, exploiting the chance of a lifetime? Was she Hitler's mistress, as has been alleged? Or was she just a free spirit, the pagan sensualist of her own films? These are only some of the intriguing questions Glenn B. Infield explores in Leni Riefenstahl: The Fallen Film Goddess." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 262-267 ISBN: 0690011679 LON: 76007084; 760131 More info

They discover that the more the social, political, and economic conditions worsen and chaos and pain prevail , the more Palestinian cinema becomes involved with the national struggle. As expected, Palestinian cinema has unfolded its national narrative against the Israeli narrative. The reflection of the Israeli in Palestinian cinema is one more harsh and painful testimony to the resentment and hostility between the two peoples, who share a common patch of earth and landscape.
