Projeté pour la 1ère fois en Allemagne le 23 Septembre 1926, Les Aventures du Prince Achmed est considéré comme le premier long-métrage d’animation de l’histoire du cinéma. Malgré ses 80 ans passés, ce film enchanteur reste un grand classique du cinéma d’animation, sensible, inventif, remuant et romantique. Adapté des Mille et Une Nuits , c’est l’histoire d’un méchant sorcier qui trompe le Prince Achmed en l’envoyant à la mort sur un cheval magique. Le prince échappera au piège du magicien, et foncera la tête la première dans une série d’aventures - accompagné d’Aladdin, combattant des ogres, des monstres et des esprits, avant de rencontrer l’amour avec la jolie princesse Peri Banu.

12 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in German and No Linguistic content and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walther Ruttmann is a pioneer of modern multimaedia art. His first short films are unique experiments with forms, colors, and rhythm, his innovative commercials connected abstract animation art with concrete messages. The symphonic documentary Berlin, die Sinfonie der Grossstadt is one of the most famous silent cassics, the travelogue Melodie der Welt became the first German sound feature film. With the radio play Weekend Ruttmann created the first "sound film without images" while his short In der Nacht transforms music to images and is a prototype of modern music videos. The 2-disc DVD combines for the first time all surviving works by Walther Ruttmann from 1920-1931 in newly restored and reconstructed versions, often with original scores. It also includes lobby cards, posters, programs and text documents as well as little known paintings and drawings by Ruttmann." [Publisher's website.]
