Lotte Reiniger Retrospective Screening

TAIS Member $5 | Non-Member $8

(Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite or at the door, RSVP info@tais.ca)

Charlotte “Lotte” Reiniger (1899 –1981) was a German film director and the foremost pioneer of silhouette animation. Her best-known films are The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926) –the oldest surviving feature-length animated film – and Papageno (1935). She animated over 40 films and developed the animation table – a setup considered to be one of the predecessors to the first multiplane camera. Her hypnotic films painstakingly crafted out of card and wire, and animated by hand, have influenced generations of filmmakers and artists.

Please join us for a retrospective presentation of 16mm films made by Reiniger and pay tribute to an animation legend.
