The Adventures of Prince Achmed

I’m so pleased to see that Lotte Reiniger’s The Adventures of Prince Achmed is on YouTube.

This film is a waking dream. It is delicate yet, forceful. The hand made mood and texture is of particular appeal to me.

Though the full film is below, it is cued to the scene where the Prince Achmed finally discovers how make the horse descend and arrives in the “magic islands of Waq-Waq.”
