Shorts by Lotte Reiniger

Seven animated shorts by the filmmaker—a master (and perhaps the sole practitioner) of an elaborate form of cutout animation in which silhouetted characters perform before filigreed backgrounds: Harlequin (1931), The Stolen Heart (1934), Papageno (1935), The Magic Horse (1953), and three shorts from 1954, The Gallant Little Tailor, The Frog Prince, and Snow White and Red Rose.
