Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed

Last night Nathaniel and I watched The Adventures of Prince Achmed. This film was released in 1926, using only silhouette stop-motion techniques. The result is stunning and beautifully detailed. Here are a few stills – these are just the tip of the iceberg, though. I urge you to just watch it for yourself!
