Zeitgeist Films and Christopher Nolan’s Syncopy are partnering on a national tour of select Quay Brothers’ films, curated by Nolan and including his new short film, “Quay,” about the inner workings of the London-based animators’ studio.
“The Quay Brothers in 35mm,” a 70-minute program featuring new 35mm prints of three short films by Stephen and Timothy Quay, and Nolan’s “Quay” will make their debut in a one week run at New York City’s Film Forum beginning Wednesday, August 19. Nolan and the Quays will be together for opening night discussions, and the Quays will be present throughout the first weekend.
The program will travel to 10 additional cities, including Dallas (Alamo Drafthouse Richardson, 9/3-7), LA (Cinefamily, 9/4-10 with appearances by Nolan), Houston (Museum of Fine Arts, 9/12-13), Austin (Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, 9/17), Cleveland (Cleveland Cinematheque, 9/24-27), Boston (Brattle Theatre, 9/25-10/1), Detroit (Detroit Institute of Art, 10/9-11), Seattle (SIFF Film Center, 10/9-15), Chicago (The Music Box Theatre, 10/16-22) and Toronto (TIFF Bell Lightbox Theater, 10/27).
