Once a small girl, from Berlin, hailed from the shadows, a light from within.
Once upon a time, long before Disney or Pixar, Lotte Reiniger ignited the world of animation with shadows, light, and a pair of magical scissors.
Before Walt Disney, there was a trailblazing woman at the vanguard of animation. Influenced by folktales and legends, Lotte Reiniger was a tour de force of creativity and innovation: she invented the multiplane camera and created the first animated feature. This stunning film explores the life and times of a woman who is finally being given her due. - Eileen Arandiga, Canadian Film Centre
With music, magic, and a stirring narration by Lotte Reiniger herself, LOTTE THAT SILHOUETTE GIRL tells the fairy tale story of one of animations’ biggest influencers.
