Episode Eleven - Lotte Reiniger
The Dead Ladies Show is a series of entertaining and inspiring talks about women who achieved amazing things against all odds, presented live in Berlin. This podcast is based on that series.
In this episode, DLS co-founders Katy Derbyshire and Florian Duijsens take over for your regular host Susan Stone, so she can tell you all about Lotte Reiniger. As a girl in Berlin, Lotte started cutting intricate paper silhouettes; her talent and dedication led her to become a pioneer of animation and film starting at a very young age. Her 1926 film The Adventures of Prince Achmed is the first full-length feature animated film — take that Walt Disney! Disney claimed the honor for his 1937 Snow White, and also patented one of Lotte’s inventions, but she persevered to become a resepcted favorite who has inspired generations. Her signature style can be seen in everything from Bjork videos to Harry Potter films.
Plus, we reveal some exciting DLS news, and Susan gives a shout-out to the ShoutOut Live! Radical Women podcast festival and some of the rad women she met there.
