Edited by the distinguished filmmaker and historian Lewis Jacobs, the book has become an indispensable reference for both students and practitioners of documentary. This new edition brings The Documentary Tradition up to date and includes the writings of almost 100 filmmakers and critics. To the five parts which trace the development of the genre from the 1920s Jacobs has added a new section of seven essays on the documentaries of the 1970s. The section is introduced by his own survey of the filmmaking of the period, "From Political Activism to Women's Consciousness," and accompanied by a selected list of documentaries of the 1970s together with photographs from a number of these films. The bibliography of works on documentary films and filmmakers has been expanded." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 577-579 ISBN: 0393950425 LON: 1437994 URL status: URL: 'http://-'

Leni Riefenstahl : the fallen film goddess / by Glenn B. Infield
New York: Crowell, 1976.
Call No: 81RIE INF Author: Infield, Glenn B. (Glenn Berton) Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Crowell PubDate: 1976 PhysDes: 278 p.,  leaves of plates : ill. ; 24 cm Subject: FASCISM AND THE CINEMA; GERMANY; JEWS AND THE CINEMA; JEWS IN FILMS; WOMEN FILMMAKERS; WOMEN IN FILMS. GERMANY; WORLD WAR II AND THE CINEMA; RIEFENSTAHL, LENI; BLAUE LICHT, DAS (G, Leni Riefenstahl, 1932); BLUE LIGHT, THE (G, Leni Riefenstahl, 1932); OLYMPIA (G, Leni Riefenstahl, 1938); TRIUMPH OF THE WILL (G, Leni Riefenstahl, 1935) Summary: "Notoriety clings to [Leni] Riefenstahl's name. 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
