Trick Factory—German Animation Film Festival
Before Walt Disney, there was Lotte Reiniger. The German animator’s style silhouetted her characters against dream-like backgrounds and swelling, symphonic scores. For over 60 years she paved the way for animators across the world. Get intimate with German animation at the Goethe-Institut: They’ve created 14 programs focusing on everything from contemporary animated films to German fairy tales, animated films in the Nazi period and plenty of Lotte Reiniger.
