The Filmhouse presents: The Adventures of Prince Achmed (with live accompaniment by Sink) (Cert. U)
Widely considered to be the first full-length animated feature in the history of cinema, The Adventures of Prince Achmed is a beautifully crafted piece of storytelling based loosely on the Arabian Nights. The film is an exciting tale of sword fights, genies and adventure told using a silhouette animation technique pioneered by director Lotte Reiniger.
Part of CineScore Live, a touring season of live music and film events supported by Film Hub Scotland.
