The poor yet smart trickster Si Lunchai triumphs over the cruel king.
An adaptation of an Indonesian legend, inspired by the style of the Southeast Asian shadow puppet play Wayang Kulit.
Hannes Rall (aka Hans-Martin Rall) Associate Professor (tenured) at the School of Art, Design and Media (ADM) at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
Hannes is also an illustrator and independent animation director. Hannes Rall has shown his work in exhibitions and screenings and has been an invited speaker for workshops and conferences in more than 20 countries and over 250 film-festivals worldwide. His research and artistic work is focused on adapting classic literature for animation and the transformation of traditional Asian art forms for animation. He is currently working on the script for the animated feature film "Die Nibelungen"
(funded by MFG Baden-Wuerttemberg) and two new animated short films: "As You Like It" (adapted from Shakespeare) and "The Story of the Ghost Ship" (co-directed with Kathrin Albers, adapted from Wilhelm Hauff).
“Si Lunchai” is a labor of love created together with many young talented artists from Southeast Asia. It pays homage to the pioneering work of German animation legend Lotte Reiniger (“Prince Achmed”) as well as to the beautiful art form of
“Wayang Kulit”-the Southeast Asian shadow puppet play.
