With live score by Sink
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.
Filmhouse Edinburgh have commissioned Sink to bring our live sounds to this very special animated feature as part of a Scotland-wide tour.
Reaching beyond our usual instrumentation of violin, accordion and saxophone we will create a score that is in part composed and in part conjured; improvising and experimenting as Lotte Reininger did with shape and colour 90 years ago.
