One-hundred years ago today (January 22nd 1917) the first-ever Brazilian animated film 'O Kaiser' was exhibited in a Rio de Janeiro theatre.

'O Kaiser' was made by Brazilian cartoonist Alvaro Marins, who used the pen name Seth. His film, a political satire, highlighted the building ambitions of Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm II. The film is sadly lost today.  Just one image from the film remains thanks to an article saved from a newspaper.

This is a great reminder of how old the medium of animation is.

It can also serve as a great reminder to make sure you have all your important videos and photos backed up - you don't want to risk losing them forever!
