The Brothers Quay

The Brothers Quay

Outstanding creators of puppet animations, directors, graphic designers, and film set designers. Apart from animations, they produced two feature-length live action films (Institute Benjamenta, 1995; The Piano Tuner of Earthquakes, 2006) and several ballet films. They draw inspiration from literature (the prose of Bruno Schulz, Franz Kafka, Konrad Bayer, Raymond Roussel, Stanisław Lem), art (outsider art, 20th-century avant-garde), and music (Lech Jankowski, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Witold Lutosławski). They were considerably influenced by the Polish School of Posters, as well as the film works of Walerian Borowczyk and Kon Ichikawa. The Brothers Quay will meet the audience at 6:30 pm on Friday, the 25th of November, at the Pod Baranami Palace. We would like to invite You for one of The Brothers Quay movie which will be introduced by them at 9:30 pm the 25th of November, at the Pod Baranami Cinema.
