Synopsis:

Stop motion animators and identical twins Stephen and Timothy Quay are masters of miniaturisation. Finding their inspiration in Eastern European literature and classical music and art, their work distinguished by its dark humour and an uncanny feeling for colour and texture. They turn their tiny sets into unforgettable worlds suggestive of long-repressed childhood dreams.

Three Quay masterworks - In Absentia (2000), The Comb (1991) and Street of Crocodiles (1986) - have been selected by director Christopher Nolan and will be screened in 35mm alongside Quay (2015), Nolan’s new short film revealing the inner workings of the Brothers’ fascinating studio.

All four films will be screened in 35mm.
