Sorry you missed it! This screening has already taken place.

Two of the world’s most original filmmakers, the identical Quay Brother twins, have been making their unique puppetry and stop-motion animation for over 30 years, spawning an enormous cult following and many high profile admirers, from Terry Gilliam to Christopher Nolan. A passion for detail, an uncanny use of focus and camera movement make their films unique and instantly recognisable. Best known for their classic 1986 film Street of Crocodiles, they are masters of miniaturisation and their tiny sets create a landscape of long-repressed childhood dreams. This 35mm shorts package features three classic Quay Brothers shorts alongside Christopher Nolan short about the brothers and their studio.

Features the following shorts films:

- In Absentia (Dir Quay Brothers. UK 2000. 19min)
- Quay (Dir Christopher Nolan. USA 2015. 8min)
- The Comb (Dir Quay Brothers. UK 1990. 17min)
