The oldest existing animated feature, The Adventures of Prince Achmed was made by 23-year-old teacher Lotte Reiniger using the stop-motion and silhouette animation techniques she perfected. Taken from The Arabian Nights, the film tells the story of a wicked sorcerer who tricks Prince Achmed into mounting a magical flying horse and sends the rider off on a flight to his death. But the prince foils the magician’s plan, and soars headlong into a series of wondrous other adventures.

Celebrate the 10th anniversary performance of the film score by Miles & Karina, with accordion, guitar, banjo, viola, glockenspiel and percussion, which premiered at Children’s Film Festival Seattle a decade ago and has now traveled the world!

Thanks to our community partners the Seattle Area German American School and Goethe Pop-up Seattle for their support of this screening!
