Christopher Nolan’s Quay Brothers Short Documentary Preeming in August

Word around the campfire is Christopher Nolan has finished a “comprehensive draft” of a script for his next film. That right there is the extent of information we have on that, but while he’s been doing some writing he’s also been doing some directing in the form of a short documentary focused on stop-motion animators Stephen and Timothy Quay (aka the Brothers Quay).

The documentary, titled Quay, will screen as part of “The Quay Brothers – On 35mm” at the Film Forum beginning August 19 with Nolan and the brothers in attendance. In addition to the new documentary a selection of Quay films will play, curated by Nolan, including In Absentia (2000), The Comb (1991) and Street of Crocodiles (1986) along with Nolan’s Quay, which takes a look at the inner workings of the Brothers’ studio. Fandor subscribers can watch several of the Quay Brothers’ films right here, including the three just mentioned.
