The Adventures of Prince Achmed is an animated fairytale film based on tales from The Arabian Nights. It is the oldest surving animated feature film and still stands as one of the great classics of animation. Created by Lotte Reiniger, film director and formost pioneer of silhouette animation, Price Achmed was first shown in Germany in 1926. Musician Chris Davies reinvigorates the film with his skilful composition and live performance using a spectacular array of instruments from around the world to accompany Prince Achmed's journey from the Middle East, to China and beyond.

"It's as if you're watching the film as it should be viewed: In the 1920's. His accompaniment is a work of art in itself. I recommend it wholeheartedly." Mark Shapiro, Studio Laika
