The Adventures of Prince Achmed + live score by Sink

September 9, 2016

Widely considered to be the first full-length animated feature in the history of cinema,The Adventures of Prince Achmed is a beautifully crafted piece of storytelling based loosely on the Arabian Nights. The film is an exciting tale of sword fights, genies and adventure told using a silhouette animation technique pioneered by director Lotte Reiniger.

Filmhouse have commissioned acoustic trio Sink to bring their live sounds to this very special animated feature as part of a Scotland-wide tour. Reaching beyond their usual instrumentation of violin, accordion and saxophone to create a score that is in part conjured, Sink set the quiet air into magical vibration.

Part of CineScore Live, a touring season of live music and film events supported by Film Hub Scotland.
