Book News Annotation:

The U.S. edition of the filmmaker's memoir, originally published in German in 1987 (Albrecht Knaus Verlag) and translated in 1992 for publication in Great Britain under the title The Sieve of Time (Quartet Books). It's a hefty chronicle--she was 90 when it was published, and she had a lot to tell--and she also had a lot to explain regarding her connections with Hitler and Nazism (her most famous film, Triumph of the Will, is recognized as a Nazi propaganda masterpiece). The memoir itself seems to be a propaganda piece; but still, her extraordinary talent, energy, and individuality cannot be disputed. Includes photos.
