Video essay explores the propaganda methods and rhetoric of Triumph of the Will

0

"Not a triumph of cinema but of budget"

You might recall a video essay from Folding Ideas about the crummy editing of Suicide Squad. It was an informative look at the lessons a person can learn from poor cinematic craft. The video essay was a much better watch than the actual movie.

Folding Ideas released another video recently about the language and grammar of cinema, this time focusing on Leni Reifenstahl's infamous 1935 Nazi propaganda film Triumph of the Will (Triumph des Willens). Given certain things going on nationally and internationally, this seems like a rather timely exploration of the rhetorical techniques of propagandists.

Check out the video essay below. Feel free to discuss it in the comments.
