This summer, the Gregg Museum of Art & Design will screen three films that are relevant to objects in the museum's diverse and extensive permanent collection. The second film in the series is The Adventures of Prince Achmed, a 1926 German animated fairytale that is the oldest surviving animated feature film in the world. The film was made with a silhouette animation technique that Lotte Reiniger invented and is similar to Indonesian Wayang shadow puppets. Reiniger's film was animated frame by frame, not manipulated in live action. The Gregg Museum has a number of Wayang shadow puppets in its permanent collection.
