Amiina with the films of Lotte Reiniger (Iceland/Germany)
Lotte Reiniger was one of the greatest creators in animation history. Inspired by Chinese silhouette puppetry, she made 60 delicately wrought black and white films that revolutionised the film industry from the 1920s to 1940s, bringing timeless fairytales to life like never before.
For this special family show, members of Icelandic group Amiina create a delicate and ethereal score for three of Reiniger’s films, including Cinderella. Well known for their work with Sigur Rós, Amiina utilise an assortment of instruments – including violin, glassophone, musical saw and water-filled glasses – to evoke magical soundscapes of wonder and possibility.
Originally commissioned by Jersey Branchage Film Festival.
