Brothers Quay Animation Series

The BFI Collection


Stephen & Timothy Quay

The Brothers Quay, Stephen and Timothy Quay, are identical twins and directors that have set new standards and parameters for model animation. The Quays are renowned for their craftsmanlike methods and their unusual sources of inspiration, incorporating elements from the surrealist work of the great Czech animator Jan Svankmajer and the literary sensibilities of Eastern Europe, while remaining outside any recognisable tradition. This collection features 13 films from 1979-2003.
