The Quay Brothers

SUPPORT
Arizona

A unique touring program of four short films on 35mm curated by celebrated filmmaker Christopher Nolan! Featuring the Quay Brothers’ classic short films, In Absentia, The Comb and Street of Crocodiles, and Christopher Nolan’s short documentary, Quay!
American identical twins working in London, stop motion animators Stephen and Timothy Quay find their inspiration in Eastern European literature and classical music and art, their work distinguished by its dark humor and an uncanny feeling for color and texture. Masters of miniaturization, they turn their tiny sets into unforgettable worlds suggestive of long-repressed childhood dreams. These three Quay masterworks, selected by director Christopher Nolan, feature broken pencils and lead shavings in In Absentia (2000; “a dazzling piece of work” – The Guardian); a porcelain doll’s explorations of a dreamer’s imagination in The Comb (1991; “most beautiful of their recent films” – The New Yorker); and the nightmarish netherworld of Street of Crocodiles (1986; “their crowning achievement” – Film Comment); and the documentary Quay (2015), Nolan’s short film revealing the inner workings of the Brothers’ studio. All four films will be shown on 35mm prints. (Dir. by Stephen Quay, Timothy Quay and Christopher Nolan, 1986-2015, UK/USA, 67 mins., Not Rated)
