In 2000, Riefenstahl returned to East Africa to revisit the Nuba she photographed in the late 70s, whose pictures restarted her career. Of course, this was not as simple as it sounds in war-torn Sudan and might easily have been her last trip. Her helicopter crashed and she was briefly reported dead. This is the story of her voyage and what she found there. The film maker also takes a closer look at her private life. It features many of Riefenstahl's well-known Nuba photos and some Nuba film explained by Leni, all of it in contrast to the realities of modern Sudan.

I've only seen a 48-minute version of this on RAI television, unfortunately with voice overs for Riefenstahl and too short. It is undoubtedly a gentle film. Müller again gives her the opportunity to talk about herself and shows different aspects of her life. Again it contains a revealing and a bit dubious scene which illustrates that for Leni Riefenstahl doing a good job with film always came first, even before genuine grief over a dead friend.

Another solid documentary about a great subject, though not particularly exciting.
