SHORT FILMS OF THE QUAY BROTHERS
Since the late 1970s, identical twins Stephen and Timothy Quay – born in Philadelphia and now working in London – have made a unique contribution to animation in general and the puppet film in particular. Filtering arcane visual, literary, musical, cinematic and philosophical influences through their own utterly distinctive sensibility, each Quay film rivets the attention through hypnotic control of décor, music and movement, evoking half-remembered dreams and long-suppressed childhood memories, fascinating and deeply unsettling in turn. There is simply nothing like experiencing their work on the big screen, and the majority of this selection of shorts will be presented in the Quays’ preferred format of 35mm, many in new prints. The program includes such Quay classics as Street of Crocodiles, Rehearsal of Extinct Anatomies, Anamorphosis, In Absentia and The Phantom Museum
