Product Overview

To coincide with the theatrical release of The Piano Tuner of Earthquakes, Zeitgeist Films presents a thirteen-film retrospective of shorts by famed animators the Quay Brothers. Two of the world's most original filmmakers, identical twins Stephen and Timothy Quay have been making their unique blend of puppetry and stop-motion animation for nearly 30 years and have spawned an enormous cult following. The Quays display a passion for detail, a breathtaking command of color and texture, and an uncanny use of focus and camera movement that make their films unique and instantly recognizable.

Best known for their classic 1986 film Street of Crocodiles, which filmmaker Terry Gilliam recently selected as one of the ten best animated films of all time, they are masters of miniaturization and on their tiny sets have created an unforgettable world, suggestive of a landscape of long-repressed childhood dreams.

Zeitgeist is proud to present these extraordinary films in brand-new theatrical prints (freshly struck by the British Film Institute).

This retrospective collection includes the films Nocturna Artificialia, The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer, The Epic of Gilgamesh, Street of Crocodiles, Rehearsals for Extinct Anatomies, Dramolet (Stille Nacht I), The Comb (From the Museums of Sleep), Anamorphosis (or De Artificiali Perspectiva), Are We Still Married? (Stille Nacht II), Tales from the Vienna Woods (Stille Nacht III), Can't Go Wrong Without You (Stille Nacht IV), In Absentia, and The Phantom Museum.
