Cut! How Lotte Reiniger and a Pair of Scissors Revolutionized Animation

In the 1920s, when young women had limited opportunities, Lotte Reiniger used her curiosity and ingenuity to change film history. Inspired by the puppetry of her youth, and encouraged by teachers and mentors working in film at the time, Lotte Reiniger honed her skills in cutting out paper silhouettes to use in stop-motion animation. Eventually, her talent and her drive led her to invent the multiplane camera, which allowed her to give her animation depth of field. With her small team, Lotte designed and directed the oldest full-length animated film in existence.

Acclaimed author C. E. Winters and debut artist Matt Schu expertly introduce young readers to Lotte Reiniger, a remarkable and often overshadowed historical figure. From her childhood to her groundbreaking accomplishments, Cut! follows Reiniger as she, long before Walt Disney, revolutionizes the landscape of animation using light, a pair of scissors, and her imagination.
