Description:
 The Adventures of Prince Achmed with live, original music by lastdayshining.

The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926) is the oldest surviving animated feature film. Director Lotte Reiniger used paper and lead cut-outs to illustrate the Arabian Nights story with tinted silhouettes.

lastdayshining is a hard-hitting post rock band from Albany, NY. The bandís sound is characterized by expressive instrumental buildups that travel through a range of dynamic changes from quiet lows to bone crushing highs. The band released its latest album "The Patchwork" on May 14th, 2013. The album consists of six songs, each one composed by a different member of the band, giving the album a uniquely cohesive sound. Currently you can catch them touring in Albany, NY. Listen to them in the iTunes Store and iHeart Radio, stream them on Spotify and learn more about them at their website, www.lastdayshining.com.
