Lotte Reiniger (Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1899- Dettenhausen, FRG, 1981) was one of the leading pioneers in the development of various animation techniques, most notably the use of silhouettes. Using cardboard cut-outs and thin sheets of lead under a camera, the German artist recovered this classic children’s fairy tale with a symphony of figures dancing in sets to the sound of music that cannot be heard today. The original prints were probably colour-tinted for screening, as was the case of many films which are only known today in black and white.
