The Quay Brothers’ astounding miniaturizations form unforgettable worlds drawn from stories in Eastern European literature, art, and classical music. Three of their favorites—In Absentia (2000), The Comb (1991), and Street of Crocodiles (1986) screen with Christopher Nolan’s Quay (2015), creating a stunning program on new 35mm prints that both honors the work of some of the world’s most original filmmakers and delves into their creative process. 1986–2015, 35mm, color and B&W, 70 minutes.
The Quay Brothers visited the Walker in 1996 for a Dialogue with former Walker film curator Bruce Jenkins, and recently Christopher Nolan celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Dialogue program with a conversation last May with Scott Foundas.
