ECA Saturday Matinee: The Adventures of Prince Achmed


The oldest existing animated feature, The Adventures of Prince Achmed was created in 1926. The film tells the story of a wicked sorcerer who tricks Prince Achmed into mounting a magical flying horse and sends the rider off on a flight to his death. But the prince foils the magician’s plan and soars headlong into a series of wondrous other adventures. Musicians Miles and Karina were commissioned 10 years ago by the Northwest Film Forum to compose a new score for this classic film, and will accompany the film, live!
