The Adventures of Prince Achmed introductory talk


On Thursday 5th March 2015, I will be providing a short introduction to the animated feature film The Adventures of Prince Achmed at No.6 Cinema, Portsmouth. The film will be accompanied by a live score, and will be preceded by a short film called Johnny Dreams which is, similarly to Prince Achmed, a shadow puppet film. It is after the short film, whilst the musical accompaniment for Prince Achmed is being set up, that I will give my brief introduction to The Adventures of Prince Achmed. The event is presented by the OSKA Bright Charity which aims to encourage artistic ambitions of disabled filmmakers and change the cultural attitudes towards and empowering learning in those filmmakers so that they may achieve their creative goals.

My talk will examine the film as a landmark and pioneer of animated film, the processes involved in creating the stop motion shadow puppet animation, and the film as an example of German Expressionist art.

Tickets to the event are FREE but must be pre-booked HERE.

I would love to see anyone there that can make it. I gave a very successful introduction to British film Pride (2014) last October (a post on which and a video of can be found HERE).
