Helene Bertha Amalie "Leni" Riefenstahl (1902 – 2003) was a German film director, producer, screenwriter, editor, photographer, actress and dancer.
In the 1930s she directed Triumph des Willens ("Triumph of the Will") and Olympia, resulting in worldwide attention and acclaim. Both movies are widely considered two of the most effective, and technically innovative, propaganda films ever made. Her involvement in Triumph des Willens, however, would significantly damage her career and reputation after the war.
After the war, Riefenstahl was arrested, but classified as being a "fellow traveler" only and was not associated with war crimes. Riefenstahl died of cancer on 8 September 2003 at the age of 101 and was buried at Munich Waldfriedhof. She was praised for her body of work following her death and remains one of the most acclaimed female movie directors.
