filmmaker's note
“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.
