Arabian Animation - Even Before Snow White !
内容The Arabs weren't away Animation ; when Disney (1901–
1966) started to make his first feature animated film "Snow White
and Seven Dwarfs" in 1930s, there was a small group of Russian
carpenters who worked with their Egyptian partners to create a film
for the Egyptian Ministry of Defense as a mobilization film for the
national army against the Nazi army attacking in the World War II.
The group of carpenters was Frenkel brothers, and the film called
"National Defense" and was released before feature films in cinema
halls in Cairo and Alexandria in late 1939, to be one of the oldest
animation films not only in Egypt, but in Africa and the Arab world.
