Exhibition at Mu.Zee, Ostend (BE)


In 2018 the Ostend-born renowned film director Raoul Servais will be 90. This is being celebrated with a lot of activities in Ostend, a few publications and the opening of a room at Mu.ZEE permanently devoted to his oeuvre. Servais has won many international film prizes, such as the Palme d’Or in Cannes (Operation X-70, 1971 & Harpya, 1979) and the Primo Premio in Venice (Chromophobia, 1966).

The exhibition in the Tübingen City Museum is the world's largest presentation of the works of Lotte Reiniger. The virtuoso paper-cutting artist developed the medium to a hitherto unknown climax; she was an imaginative and imaginative shadowplayer and film pioneer. Above all, "The Adventures of Prince Achmed", which was produced between 1923 and 1926 as the first full-length animated film in history, made Lotte Reiniger famous.
