Viktoria Furian (AT)
In Die Fahnen Hoch? (Fly the Flags High?), I’ve endeavored to deal critically with the mass gatherings staged by the Nazis. I oriented my approach on Leni Riefenstahl’s 1934 propaganda film Triumph of the Will. I preselected individual scenes; then, with the help of sound that I use as a design element, I produced new visual material.
The film Die Fahnen hoch? is an allusion to the original material of Leni Riefenstahl’s 1934 propaganda film Triumph of the Will.
For the final project of the fifth term at the High School for Artistic Design in Linz, Viktoria Furian created a stop-motion video on the subject of “Factors that Influence the Individual: Propaganda.”
She projected series of images at a rate of 15/second to achieve movements that are as fluid as possible. This called for approximately 2,000 photos. The audio track was used from the original scenes in order to retain the feel of Riefenstahl’s work.
