A magical film, suitable for the entire family!
It’s the oldest still surviving feature animation film in the film history, created by one of the most important and inventive animators: Lotte Reiniger. Reiniger’s shadow animations were of great influence to film history and especially Walt Disney. Just like Reiniger, he often based his films on fairy tales, but he also used some of her innovations such as her multiplane camera technique, which adds dept to the flat animated images. In Disney’s ALICE THE PIPER, a king orders Alice and her cat Julius to chase the rats out of his town.
