Adapted from the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, The Emperor’s Nightingale tells the story of a Chinese emperor who becomes enchanted by a nightingale’s song, and then that of the bird’s mechanical replacement. Dialogue-free but bursting with imagery and imagination, it’s simply one of the most dazzling stop-motion animated films ever made! (72 mins., DCP)
