Lotte Reiniger: Pioneer of Early Animation
We wanted to share this short documentary about Lotte Reiniger by Studio Panda.
They describe this film as: Lotte Reiniger pioneered early animation, yet her name remains largely unknown. This animated short celebrates her life and work, and reflects on why she never received the recognition she deserves.
We found a longer documentary The Art of Lotte Reiniger (1970, John Isaacs) that shows Lotte working in her home studio. It goes in depth into here creation process. Her process is fascinating. We hope you enjoy both of these films.
