When: April 22-24, 7:30 p.m. 2016
Stephen and Timothy Quay -- better known as the Brothers Quay -- create some of the most imaginative and unsettling films ever seen. Their stop-motion animated films are shot with looming shadows and unidentifiable sounds that enhance the otherworldliness of their partially-disassembled puppet actors. Director Christopher Nolan was so inspired by their work, he's curated a touring package of three of their films. The Quay Brothers in 35mm includes "In Absentia," "The Comb" and their brilliant "Street of Crocodiles," which is based on Bruno Schulz's short story of the same title. Nolan's own short film "Quay," which takes you into the brothers' studio, rounds out the program. The Quay Brothers in 35mm is screened at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (April 22 to 24) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/film-series). Tickets are $4 to $6.
