Leni Riefenstahl, who produced masterful propaganda films for the Nazis, plans her first movie release in nearly 50 years to coincide with her 100th birthday this summer.
"Impressions Under Water," a 45-minute film about the underwater world of the Indian Ocean, is the result of dives between 1974 and 2000, Riefenstahl told Germany's Die Welt newspaper in a rare interview published Monday.
"As soon as (composer) Giorgio Moroder has finished writing the soundtrack, we'll have the premiere . . . right on time for my 100th birthday in August," Riefenstahl said, speaking at her home near the Bavarian Alps. She said she made more than 2,000 dives for the film.
