Amazons And Their Men
by Jordan Harrison
with Satya Bhabha, Heidi Schreck, Brian Sgambati, and Rebecca Wisocky
The Frau used to make beautiful films for a fascist government. Now she's trying to direct a film that's simply beautiful. The Frau casts herself in the lead role of the Amazon queen Penthesilea, who falls for Achilles on the battlefield of the Trojan War. But when her actors start disappearing, it becomes difficult for the Frau to ignore the real war outside her sound stage. Inspired by the life and work of Leni Riefenstahl.
