THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED (Lotte Reiniger, 1926)
THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED is the earliest surviving feature-length animated film, and the first ever made by a woman. Lotte Reiniger devised a cut-out silhouette animation technique, inspired by Indonesian shadow puppet theater, for her adaptation of stories from the 1001 Arabian Nights, and she uses it to dazzling effect to illustrate the fantastic exploits of Prince Achmed on the magic isle of Wak Wak.
