Submitted by Zodiac Film Club

  • Fairytale Christmas Special featuring THE WHITE REINDEER aka Valkoinen peura d. Erik Blomberg, 1952 + Animated shorts by Lotte Reiniger
  • 21 DEC 2021 // 19:00 // The Castle Cinema // London E9

In snowy Finnish lapland, a lonely newlywed woman seeks a love spell from a shaman, but her innate powers cause shapeshifting side effects. It wouldn’t be a Zodiac Christmas without complex female characters, and men suffering sad fates now would it?

The auteur behind the oldest surviving animated feature, Lotte Reinier’s achievements were overshadowed by the rise of Disney during the 20th century, but her part in the development of animation has become more widely known in the age of the internet. We’re excited to give three of her enchanting short fairytale adaptations a rare outing on the big screen.

After the screening, we hope you’ll join us for a mulled wine in The Castle’s beautiful bar!
