The Silent Film Club returns with another extremely visual silent film treat – the oldest surviving animated feature film in cinema history.


Using a pioneering technique of animated cut-out silhouettes this is the story of a hero on an enchanted horse battling with an evil sorcerer.

An original soundtrack will be played live, using exotic instruments such as the oud, cumbus and darabouka to complement the Arabian nights flavour.
