Prince Achmed (PG)

Germany/1926/66mins. Dir. Lotte Reiniger

Prince Achmed journeys from the Middle East to China and beyond. Based on tales from The Arabian Nights this is the oldest surviving animated feature film, still regarded as one of the great classics of animation. Musician Chris Davies reinvigorates the film with his skilful composition and live performance using a spectacular array of instruments from around the world.
