SHARE Producer for Nazis plans movie for 100th birthday

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.
