Family Screening:

The Adventures of Prince Achmed (PG)

4.30pm – 6pm

With live accompaniment & a short introduction to the work of Lotte Reiniger by Rona Murray

The Adventures of Prince Achmed is an animated fairytale film based on tales from The Arabian Nights. It is the oldest surviving animated feature film and still stands as one of the great classics of animation.

A joy to behold. Beautiful and innovative - age only adds to its brilliance and charm.” Empire

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
