The world premiere of a live score by rising star contemporary composer Bushra El-Turk, accompanying Lotte Reiniger's ground-breaking film 'The Adventures of Prince Achmed', the world's first feature-length animation. Performed by a chamber ensemble combining classical Western and traditional Middle Eastern instruments, this is a unique celebration of multicultural musical styles. With dazzling visual effects, a sharp sense of humour and an enchanting story from 'The Arabian Nights', 'Prince Achmed' (1926) established Reiniger as a major cinematic pioneer. Championed on its release by Jean Renoir among others, the film anticipates early Disney animations by over a decade.
