Brothers Quay Screening @ 21c – Tuesday Oct. 30 – 7pm & 9pm

Riped wholesale from their MySpace bulletin, here’s what the Louisville Film Society has to say about the event:

Celebrate Halloween with us @ 21c Museum Hotel with a festival of films by the Brothers Quay. All films will be screened on 16mm prints.

Identical twins, the extraordinary Brothers Quay have been blurring the boundary between miniature puppetry and live action with their innovative short films since the late 1970s. On their exquisite handcrafted sets they have conjured up an unforgettable world, suggestive of a landscape of long repressed childhood dreams.

The following films will be screened:

1) REHEARSALS FOR EXTINCT ANATOMIES
2) THE EPIC OF GILGAMESH
3) THE CABINET OF JAN SVANKMAJER
4) NOCTURNA ARTIFICIALIA
5) ANAMORPHOSIS
6) STREET OF CROCODILES

The Quays’ masterpiece, STREET OF CROCODILES is adapted from a
short story by Bruno Schulz, and was their first film shot on 35mm.
A museum keeper spits into the eyepiece of an ancient peep-show and
sets the musty machine in motion, plunging the viewer into a nightmarish
netherworld of bizarre puppet rituals among the dirt and grime

Tuesday, Oct 30th
2 Screenings: 7:OOPM & 9:00PM
FREE & Open to the Public
700 West Main Street
Come early and join us before the screening at Proof!

Sounds great to me. I’m in.
