Overview

Inspired by Leni Riefenstahl’s legendary propaganda film Triumph of the Will (1934) which chronicled the Nazi Party rallies and helped to glorify German leader Adolf Hitler, Image is Everything focuses on themes of propaganda, conformity, and personal responsibility. Taking place in the present day, a group of students study the tragic events of the Holocaust. When rumors swirl on the internet about a new student in their school ending in his suicide, the students are forced to face the fact that propaganda didn’t just die with Nazi Germany but is alive and well in America, even in their very own school.
