The Adventures of Prince Achmed

Believed to be the very first animated feature film, made in 1926. This silent silhouette animation is based on the Arabian nights tales. A prince sets out on a magical journey on a flying horse and makes friends with a witch, meets Aladdin, battles demons and falls in love with a princess.

Content Notes: Contains mild fantasy threat. This is an old film from 1926, and includes some racial stereotypes.

The screening will have some adjustments to make it more comfortable for audiences who may be autistic, have learning disabilities and/or access requirements. Anyone is welcome to attend, so long as you are respectful towards audiences with a range of access requirements, including people who may need to make a bit of noise or movement during a film.

  • Information about screenings with subtitles

Subtitled screenings attempt to give D/deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers an understanding of the spoken dialogue within the film, but do not include description about other aspects of the soundtrack, including music and sound effects.
