The Adventures of Prince Achmed (PG) with live accompaniment and an Introduction to the work of Lotte Reiniger by Rona Murray

Lotte Reiniger's brilliant Adventures of Prince Achmed is a true animation gem. Historically it is an important work in the animation canon -- and within the global film community. Moreover, when coupled with musician Chris Davies's new score, Reiniger's work leaps anachronistically to present day and back again. It's as if you're watching the film as it should be viewed: In the 1920's. His accompaniment is a work of art in itself. I recommend it wholeheartedly.” Mark Shapiro, Studio Laika 

A programme from female animators curated and introduced by Abigail Addision director of Animate Projects
