Day of Freedom
Directed by Leni Riefenstahl • 1935 • Germany
Taking its title from the Nuremberg Rally of 1935, this short documentary presents the armed forces of the Third Reich as an efficient system of bodies and machines in motion. The film is a dangerous celebration—through dynamic visuals and careful editing—of the machines of war and the formations and gestures of the people who make them run.
