The first feature-length animation in film history, masterminded by Lotte Reiniger and hand-tinted frame by frame. Based on ’The Arabian Nights’, the film tells the epic tale of Prince Achmed, who is tricked into mounting a magical flying horse by a wicked sorcerer. The horse carries Achmed off on a series of adventures, over the course of which he joins forces with young Aladdin, battles ogres and monsters and romances the beautiful Princess Peri Banu.

The first cut out, clip out, sihouette film ever made. The 1926 forerunner of the cartoon, hte effects, atmosphere and colours have to be seen to be believed. A truly enchanting work.
