The Magic Horse - a fairytale told with paper

"Far away and long ago in the city of 
old Baghdad, it was the Caliph's birthday..."

An untrustworthy old man - a magician - presents a ruler with a magical mechanical horse that can fly through the air.

And the Caliph's son wants to take a ride.

The innovative German animator Lotte Reiniger created this evocative 10-minute film in 1953, using silhouette paper cutouts and stop-motion animation.
