KinoKonzert: The Adventures of Prince Achmed

CTC 81 MIN
Watch Trailer

Synopsis

For the eighth edition of the KinoKonzert series, the Goethe-Institut Australien presents Lotte Reiniger’s 1926 masterpiece THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED with an original score by American-Australian jazz composer Phillip Johnston.

THE ADVENTURES OF PRINCE ACHMED is the world’s oldest surviving animated feature film. Long before Walt Disney, Lotte Reiniger created sophisticated animations, but despite her ground-breaking pioneer work the German artist rarely got the recognition she deserved.

For the KinoKonzert series, this cinematic gem will be accompanied by an equally detailed original score by US-born, Sydney-based composer Phillip Johnston. The Guardian writes about the combination: ”While Johnston and Reiniger’s compositions are each complex in their own ways, they come together simply and beautifully, stripping animation back to its abstract qualities of light, shadow, image and sound.”
