Tue, Nov 6, 2007 7 PM

Identical twins Stephen and Timothy Quay are two of the most original and revered filmmakers in the world today.

Their films often combine puppetry and stop-motion animation techniques and feature a dazzling use of focus to guide the viewer’s eye through their hermetic environments. This program presents examples from their nearly 30-year career including their masterpiece Street of Crocodiles (1986), The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer (1984), and The Phantom Museum (2003). (app. 120 mins., 16 & 35mm)
