The Quay Brothers in 35MM

And now for something utterly Bizarre... Christopher Nolan has curated a documentary featuring four short films by the Quay Brothers. Quay you say? These twin brothers (!) are avant garde expressionist animators (!!) whose wordless works featuring decaying dolls and sinister dark themes. One look will give you nightmares, so look away if you must.

The tour of the documentary begins August 19 in New York, then travels to Dallas, Houston, Austin, Cleveland, Boston, Detroit, Seattle, Chicago, and Toronto. For those unlucky few who live in the rest of the U.S., we'll have to wait until October 20 when the blu-ray The Quay Brothers: Collected Short Films is released. It features the Nolan documentary as well as 15 HD films, and a 32-page booklet. Sounds like the perfect film for Halloween!
