Now With More Twang!

The dynamic musical duo Miles and Karina have been commissioned by the Northwest Film Forum to compose a new score for The Adventures of Prince Achmed. "Prince Achmed" is one of the great classics of animation. It was created by film pioneer Lotte Reiniger in 1926, and is widely cited as the first full-length animated film. Nearly eighty years later, this enchanting film remains beautiful, mesmerizing and utterly seductive. Taken from The Arabian Nights, the film tells the story of a wicked sorcerer who tricks Prince Achmed into mounting a magical flying horse and sends the rider off on a flight to his death. Miles and Karina perform the new score live at NWFF on January 25th and 31st @ 8PM and Jan. 27th and Feb 3rd 2008 @ 1PM. More info and images from the film here.
