The Adventures of Prince Achmed (German: Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed), the oldest surviving animated feature film, will be screened at Cairo's Cimateque/Alternative Film Centre, on Saturday 23 December.
The film was directed and written by Lotte Reiniger, a German film director and the pioneer of silhouette animation.
Produced in Germany in 1926, the film resembles shadow theatre, relying on cutouts made from cardboard.
The cinematography was the work of Carl Koch, with music by Wolfgang Zeller.
According to IMDb, the film's plot revolves around a handsome prince who rides a flying horse to far-away lands and embarks on magical adventures, including befriending a witch, meeting Aladdin, battling demons and falling in love with a princess.
