The Death-Feigning Chinaman

Der scheintote Chinese

Directed by Lotte Reiniger
Germany, 1928
Animation, Short, Silent


This was originally intended as an episode in Reiniger’s 1926 feature-length filmThe Adventures of Prince Achmed, but was finally omitted since it was felt that Achmed’s plot was already quite complicated enough. Instead it was released as a stand-alone short.
