11 May @ 4.00 pm - 5.30 pmFree
Three years in the making, Lotte Reiniger’s beautiful 1926 silhouette animation brings to life magical tales from the Arabian Nights. Made in hand-cut card and manipulated using sheets of lead joined by wires, Reiniger’s exquisite shadow characters move intricately through colourful worlds of demons, witches, beautiful princesses and flying castles. A handsome prince rides a flying horse to far-away lands and embarks on magical adventures, which include befriending a witch, meeting Aladdin, battling demons and falling in love with a princess … This newly restored print is presented by Cinema Space with Goethe-Institut Gulf Region.
