THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED was one of the first animated evening films in the history of filmmaking. Lotte Reininger, a scissor artist, Walter Ruttmann, a painter and experimental filmmaker, and their team worked for three years to complete the production. The film is enchanting with its filigree figures and fantasy-filled, two-dimensional ornamentation. It was produced by hand, consisting of approximately 100,000 (!) pictures.
