Lunchtime Lecture: Ian Garden, Nazi Film Propaganda and the 1936 Olympia Film

September 25, 2012 @ 12:00 pm

Lunchtime lecture and book signing with Ian Garden

Based upon Garden’s book, The Third Reich’s Celluloid War: The Nazi Propaganda Machine in Film & TV, this lecture exposes the myths surrounding the propaganda films produced during the Third Reich. One, that the Nazis were infallible masters in the use of film propaganda. Two, that everything the Nazis said was a lie. Three, that only the Riefenstahl documentaries are significant to the modern viewer.

Including an objective analysis of all the key films produced by the Nazi regime and a wealth of film stills, Ian C. Garden takes the reader on a journey through the Nazi film propaganda machine.
