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 with 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. Through Nov 11. Comix Home Base, 7 Mal­lory St., Wan Chai, goethe.de/hongkong. Free.
