Earlier this year, we learned that blockbuster filmmaker Christopher Nolan was teaming with arthouse minded distributor Zeitgeist Films to oversee and curate Blu-Ray releases. “Leviathan” director Andrey Zvyagintsev‘s “Elena” was among first announced titles, along with a compilation of shorts helmed by famed animation directors, the Quay Brothers. But first, the duo are not only getting a big screen revival, but they are the focus of a new short film helmed by Nolan.
As part of Film Forum‘s series “The Brothers Quay On 35mm,” Nolan will unveil his simply titled “Quay” on August 19th, a documentary about Stephen and Timothy Quay. The subjects of the short will be on hand for the screening and will participate in a Q&A with Nolan as well. And yes, tickets are on sale. And while there’s no word on any further screenings of “Quay,” it’s probably safe to assume it’ll be an extra feature on that brewing Zeitgeist release.
So, something new from Nolan to look forward too until his next feature. And while you’re at it, if you’re in New York City, check out the shorts by Quays, because they’re generally terrific. [Tribeca Film]
