Conheçam Lotte Reiniger
"When I was at school, all the children used to do paper cut-outs, silhouettes, and I loved it. Later I got the theatre bug and put on shows. When other children were out playing, I was 'animating' my silhouettes. I'd make them perform Snow White, for example. When I was older, my parents were so pleased to see me sitting at home cutting out silhouettes as it was a peaceful hobby and it didn't take up much room. I built my own shadow puppet theatre"
