Lotte that Silhouette Girl is a short animated documentary about the fantastic and creative life of film pioneer Lotte Reiniger, who was a rockstar of an animator. She invented the multiplane camera and created the first feature length animation, The Adventures of Prince Achmed, which is still one of the most beautiful films to ever light up the screen.
For many unjust reasons, Lotte Reiniger is just a footnote in the history of film, but in 1923, she revolutionized the world of animation and made it what it is today. For this short film, her puppets have come back to life to set the story straight.
