Description

This is an homage to a great filmaker. I selected an emotive and touching scene. Excerpt from „Triumph des Willens (1935), by Leni Riefenstahl, from 32.54 to 36.25 minute. The film shows an outdoor rally for the Reichsarbeitsdienst (Labor Service), which is primarily a series of pseudo-military drills by men carrying shovels. They remember some battles of World War I, honouring the fallen and promising themselves forward in the future.
