dc.description.abstractIn 1935 Triumph of the Will--Riefenstahl's film of the 1934 National Socialist Party rally in Nuremberg--made its debut before an audience composed of Hitler, Goebbels and other high-ranking members of the Nazi Party. The film was personally commissioned by Hitler, and since its release has been the target of criticism as a blatant work of pro-Nazi propaganda. This thesis examines Triumph of the Will as a rhetorical artifact. Leni Riefenstal drew upon elements of contemporary cinema, utilized deeply rooted cultural symbols and references, and combined them with supreme skill to construct a work of art that was not only an effective source of propaganda in the nineteen-thirties, but continues to influence modem media today.en_US
