Don’t miss this incredible film + music event!
The Andreas Kapsalis Trio provides a live photoplay (soundtrack) to the silent 1926 animated film The Adventures of Prince Achmed, directed and animated by German animator & artist Lotte Reiniger. Renowned as the oldest feature-length animated film in existence, The Adventures of Prince Achmed gets its brilliant, mysterious feel from silhouette puppetry, a technique Reiniger perfected during her lifetime of creating breathtaking animated films. Come hear the Andreas Kapsalis Trio as they make a special visit to UMass Lowell and bring their own musical interpretation to this 1920’s masterpiece. [Please note that the above film clip does not feature the Kapsalis Trio score.]

This event is co-sponsored by the UMass Lowell Department of Music, the 119 Gallery, the Revolving Museum, and the Lowell Film Collaborative.
