"Prince Achmed" on tour to Russia
Lotte Reiniger's animated adventure film "The Adventures of Prince Achmed" (1926) is based on several stories from A 1001 Nights. It is considered to be the world's oldest still preserved animated feature film. The film is accompanied by a soundtrack, composed and played live by a band of Russian, Norwegian, Indian-Norwegian and Libanese-Norwegian musicians. The tour is supported by BrentsKult.
The show had its premiere at TIFF 2019 in January and was also performed at Silent Film Days (stumfilmdager) this April.
