Triumph of the Will is a film created and directed by Leni Rienfenstahl at the request of Chancellor Adolf Hitler in order to present to the German public that Germany is on the rise again after the humiliation they faced as a country after The First World War. The use of propaganda films like these served as a useful tool when trying to present to the public a biased or misleading political cause or point of view.
