Product description

Product Description


Lotte Reiniger was one of the twentieth century's major animation artists, pioneering a distinctive style of black and white silhouette animation in her interpretations of classic myths and fairy tales. Reiniger's began her career in Germany, making The Adventures of Prince Achmed (available on BFI DVD), one of the first and most ingenious full-length animated films in the history of cinema. After the war, she moved to Britain with her husband Carl Koch and made short films for the GPO and later, in collaboration with Primrose Productions, an extensive series of famous fairy short films.

With wonderful music tracks and charming narrations, these enchanting films will appeal to children and adults alike.
