THE QUAY BROTHERS THE SHORT FILMS 1979-2003 12

£6.99

Product description

QUAY BROTHERS The Short Films 1979-2003 (DVD)

Since the late 1970s, the identical twin Quay Brothers have made a unique contribution to animation in general and the puppet film in particular. Filtering arcane visual, literary, musical, cinematic and philosophical influences through their own utterly distinctive sensibility, each Quay film rivets the attention through hypnotic control of décor, music and movement, evoking half-remembered dreams and long-suppressed childhood memories, fascinating and deeply unsettling in turn.

This two-disc set contains thirteen of their classic short films in brand new restored and remastered editions, plus a collection of 'footnotes' including interviews, idents, alternative versions, unreleased pilot projects and more. The Quays were extensively involved with the preparation of these DVDs, personally supervising the transfers and menu designs, recording commentaries on selected titles, and contributing an illustrated introduction.
