Synopsis

The first feature-length animation in film history, masterminded by Lotte Reiniger and hand-tinted frame by frame. Based on 'The Arabian Nights', the film tells the epic tale of Prince Achmed, who is tricked into mounting a magical flying horse by a wicked sorcerer. The horse carries Achmed off on a series of adventures, over the course of which he joins forces with young Aladdin, battles ogres and monsters and romances the beautiful Princess Peri Banu.
