FILMPROV THRID EDITION
Join us for an evening of whimsy as we screen the enchanting silhouette animation films of Lotte Reiniger featuring a live improvised soundtrack.
Charlotte "Lotte" Reiniger was a German film director and the foremost pioneer of silhouette animation. Her best known films are The Adventures of Prince Achmed, from 1926—thought to be one of the oldest surviving feature-length animated films—and Papageno (1935). Reiniger is also noted for having devised a predecessor to the first multiplane camera;she made more than 40 films, all using her invention. (Source: Wikipedia)
