A night with the Brothers Quay

Dear Shaded Viewers in Berlin,


We would gladly like to invite you to our next Sunday with film
June 15th 2008 from 8.30 pm – open end
c/o Andrea Splisgar Lehrter Strasse 57 Haus 4, 10557 Berlin

we will be showing a series of short films made by THE BROTHERS QUAY 1979-1988
(refreshments and light food will be served during the breaks)

In the tradition of Kafka, Bunuel, and Dali, the Brothers Quay strike at the very heart of the human subconscious.
The visionary landscapes created by these American twins, who live and work in London,
reveal images so wild you will forget everything you have come to expect from animated films.
The Quay’s universe is one of puppet animation, where decaying dolls. primitive machinery,
and other found objects interact in an Expressionist world of ultra-reality.
From nightmare creepiness to Pee Wee Herman zaniness, these films emanate an eerie beauty not seen before in animated art.

“The loveliest, most hypnotic, most profoundly disturbing films ever made in this particular form.” Terrence Rafferty, THE NATION
