Released 90 years ago, the film was painstaking made by pioneering animator Lotte Reiniger, one of the most important women of early film.
Reiniger’s achievements were recently celebrated in the form of a Google Doodle on what would have been 117th birthday.
Reinger’s animation work pre-dated Disney by nearly a decade creating visual stunning and fantastical films using silhouette animation.
The Adventures of Prince Achmed was Reiniger’s breakthrough film and was based on the Arabian Nights. A silent film, the original music score has been lost but this screening will have a live accompaniment composed and performed by renowned musician Chris Davies.
“I am delighted that we are presenting an amazing piece of film history” said Cliff Baillie, General Manager of Beverley’s Parkway. “It is not often screened and I hope everyone is as excited as I am”.
