“The Magic Horse” by Lotte Reiniger

Lotte Reiniger was one of the twentieth century’s major animation artists, pioneering a unique and distinctive style of black and white silhouette animation initially inspired by the Chinese art of silhouette puppetry. Her films were interpretations of classic myths and fairy tales.

This is the Magic Horse.
