One of the earliest feature-length animated films (only two Argentinean films, both now lost, may predate it). A silent film.
Lotte Reiniger was renowned for her marvellous mastery of the silhouette film, a form employing back-lit paper cutouts and silhouetted figures.
Released in 1927 with English intertitles as "The Adventures of Prince Achmed."
Based on A Thousand and One Arabian Nights, this film combined cutout animation, wax sculpture and striking design into a ground-breaking film.
Production lasted from 1923 to 1926.
Two leading avant-garde filmmakers of the era, Walter Ruttman and Berthold Bartosch, were among Reiniger’s assistants.
Wolfgang Zeller composed the original 1926 score.
