ECCE HOMO THEATRE | ALISTAIR NEWTON, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
Trailer for 'Leni Riefenstahl vs the 20th Century'
Leni Riefenstahl vs the 20th Century
Nazi propagandist and cinematic genius Leni Riefenstahl takes on superstar New York intellectual Susan Sontag in an ideological battle of the wills. It’s fascinating fascism vs cultural camp as Ecce Homo looks cock-eyed into the icy stare of the fascist aesthetic; an expressionist cabaret on big themes for troubled times.

Leni Riefenstahl vs the 20th Century was created for the 30th annual Rhubarb Festival, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, 12 Alexander Street, Toronto, ON.
