Synopsis

A real piece of cinema history, The Adventures of Prince Achmed is the oldest surviving animated film in the world. Made by the German animator Lotte Reiniger, the way in which the movie was made back in 1926 involved cut-outs in a technique that was similar to shadow puppets - but that laid the ground for the scores of fantastic animated movies that would follow. But as well as being an important moment in the story of the movies, the film is also great fun - telling the tale of a noble Prince enlisting the help of Aladdin to battle an evil sorcerer.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
