Germany | 81 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Lotte Reiniger

Taken from The Arabian Nights, the film tells the story of a wicked sorcerer who tricks Prince Achmed into mounting a magical flying horse and sends the rider off on a flight to his death. But the prince foils the magician’s plan, and soars headlong into a series of wondrous adventures — joining forces with Aladdin and the Witch of the Fiery Mountains, doing battle with the sorcerer's army of monsters and demons, and falling in love with the beautiful Princess Peri Banu (Milestone)

"She was born with magic hands.”—Jean Renoir on [Director] Lotte Reiniger

"The images, most of them gorgeously detailed silhouettes, are dazzling." - Peter Stack (San Francisco Chronicle)
