Phantom Museums: The Short Films of the Quay Brothers

The first time I saw the work of the Brothers Quay was in Greenwich Village in 1990; I fell into hysterics with CAT, we couldn't control ourselves. Eventually, we were thrown out but it was a special experience.

The films of the Brothers Quay are unique mixed media animations inspired by the work of Jan Svankmajer and have a tone similar to David Lynch's early works like The Grandmother and Eraserhead. You can see the full set of shorts included in this collection HERE.

See the trailer HERE and see a rare interview with the brothers below which sends me into fits of uncontrollable laughter; no disrepect intended. They bring a joy to me that's probably unique

Phantom Museums is released on April 24, 2007.
