Stories that Must be Told!
History matters to us today because history offers lessons.
War is hell, but that's not the half of it, because war is mystery and terror and adventure and courage and discovery and holiness and pity and despair and longing and love. War is nasty; war is fun.
War is thrilling; war is drudgery. War makes you a man; war makes you dead.

I have never posted to this site before, yet I find I must join and post, at least this one time... and I'm sorry for the verbosity before I start, cause I know it's going to be long...
Two, maybe three days ago, Arnold Schwartzenegger was giving a press conference, which I glimpsed on CNN as I walked through the room. The thing that struck me, immediately, was the camera angle--the camera was angled down on Arnold, and he was looking *up* to answer the questions... a roommate was in the room, and I could not help but openly remark, "Wow, I guess Arnold's not such a golden child anymore." To me, that angle was an indication that Arnold was *quickly* falling from favour. My roommate--who, ironically is quite active shooting video, etc.--told me there was nothing to it, it was just how they had the space set up. This prompted me to launch into my Riefenstahl discourse; I mean, especially Arnold as an actor and them setting up a press conference so he would have to talk *up* to people, *and* they're taping it, so he looks like he's about 4' tall. My roommate listened to me, but clearly gave little weight or substance to what I was saying, which surprised me even more, given the energy he devotes to his video avocation.
We were going to get a bite to eat, as I was going on and on, carrying on about how Leni Riefenstahl had actually pioneered the camera angles we now take for granted, how those angles create moods that cause us to feel someone is large, impressive, powerful, beautiful, etc., and how, due to the fact she did it for the Nazis, she has never been able to enjoy the credit she deserves... the complication of complicity, but how else, where else would a woman have been given such free reign to follow her creativity, inspiration, and genius in the 1930's and 40's??? If I had that opportunity, would I not also take it? Even today, women are rarely

Hitler's Favorite Filmmaker
Leni Riefenstahl 19022003
At 10:50 PM on September 8th, 2003, Leni Riefenstahl passed away quietly in her home in Pöcking.
Leni Riefenstahl had never overcome the stigma from her role promoting Adolf Hilter's Nazi cause. Although her films and photographs are considered artistic masterpieces, the world shunned her for her refusal to apologize for their content.
Asked before her 100th birthday what title she would give any film about her centenary, she said:
"When one lives, one should never give up. One must always struggle and always believe that it will go on. And that gives one strength." Leni Riefenstahl
Rest in peace, Leni
