Leni Riefenstahl was the brilliant German film director of Triumph of the Will and Olympia, films cited by Pauline Kael as “the two greatest films ever directed by a woman,” and which also served as propaganda for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. In Sarah Greenman’s wildly creative multimedia play, Riefenstahl’s older and younger selves edit a film of the director’s life, playing out and reshooting scenes from her past until the director finds the beauty she is seeking. Leni is an extraordinary work about artistic responsibility, narcissism and denial.

“Greenman demonstrates a masterful confidence as her text darts from one decade to the next and one Leni to another.”- Seattle Weekly
