REED + RADER: Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader

Little People - a tiny street art project Absolutely Fabulous 212/BLOG - Fusing art and progressive fashion culture™ This Sunday a reconstructed bit of animation rarely seen, tremendously entertaining, and historically significant will screen at BAM. The Adventures of Prince Achmed, by pioneering, avant-garde, and often overlooked German filmmaker and female artist Lotte Reiniger, employs silhouetted black cardboard cutouts on illuminated glass to craft this dreamlike homage to The Arabian Nights. Developed using stop animation and originally released in 1926, this special closing day event, hosted by BAMcinemaFest, has enlisted two founding members of the Irish ambient rock band 3epkano's and avant-garde cellist Erik Friedlander to arrange and perform a new score as they find their muse in the oldest surviving animated feature film to date. More than eighty years later, what's most surprising about The Adventures of Prince Achmed is still how extraordinarily beautiful it is. Just as it must have been for viewers back in 1926.
