A fairy-tale film based on tales of the Arabian Nights, this is one of the oldest surviving feature films and still stands as one of the great classics of animation.
Musician Chris Davies reinvigorates the film with his skilful composition and live performance using a spectacular array of instruments from around the world to accompany Prince Achmed’ s journey from the Middle East, to China and beyond.
‘It’s as if you’re watching the film as it should be viewed: In the 1920s. His accompaniment is a work of art in itself. I recommend it wholeheartedly.” Mark Shapiro, Studio Laika
‘A joy to behold. Beautiful and innovative – age only adds to its brilliance and charm.’ Empire
