About the film:
Predating Disney’s ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ by a good few years, this was one of the very first animated features, with all the characters performed by stop-motion animated puppets. It tells the story of how the crafty Fox runs rings round all the other animals and how the King Lion orders his arrest and imprisonment….though, the Fox has other ideas. Directed by animation pioneer Ladislas Starevich (who created the first ever puppet-animated film in 1912), The Tale of the Fox is a masterful film that paved the way for much of the animation and stop-motion films we know and love today.
