One of the the year’s biggest treats for cinephiles was Zeitgeist Films and Syncopy’s “The Quay Brothers in 35mm,” a 70-minute program curated by Christopher Nolan that included three stop-motion animations from brothers Stephen and Timothy Quay, along with Nolan’s own short film about their production process.
The collection, screened exclusively on 35mm, has been touring the country since early September. Fortunately, anyone that missed these must-see shorts, and Nolan’s documentary “Quay,” are in luck as the distributors have announced the program’s Blu-ray release for November 24.
In addition to the films screened during the national tour, the Blu-ray will also include 12 more shorts from the Quay Brothers. Bonus features include audio commentary from the directors, plus a 28-page booklet that contains an introduction by Nolan, an updated Quay dictionary by Michael Brooke and an updated essay by film critic Michael Atkinson.
