Although director Christopher Nolan has spent the last decade making blockbusters like Interstellar, Inception, and The Dark Knight Trilogy, the next film to be taken on by the visionary is of decidedly different scale.
According to an announcement from the Film Forum, Nolan’s next project is entitled Quay, a documentary about the eponymous Quay Brothers. The Quay Brothers, Stephen and Timothy, are a duo primarily known for their innovations in stop-motion animation. The Quays, who reside in England, got their start after moving from Pennsylvania to London in 1969 in order to attend the city’s Royal College of Art. Their first short film collaborations were made during heir time in England, but unfortunately no longer exist after the only prints were irreparably destroyed in a fire.
They’ve gone on to make such highly regarded animated works as 1979’s Nocturna Artificialia, 1986’s Street of Crocodiles, and 2000’s In Absentia. They’re primarily known for the embedding of major thematic elements in their stories, as well as a methodical creative process. The Quays are said to be a big influence on Christopher Nolan’s own narrative method in the films he writes and directs, and the project from him seems to be one of passion. Nolan’s documentary will be a short film, and it will play alongside three of the Quays’ films at an event at the Film Forum itself in New York City. Nolan himself wil curate the event, and will then host a conversation with both Quay brothers. the event with Nolan present will take place on Wednesday, August 19th at 7:00pm and 9:30pm.
Nolan has yet to commit to a new major motion picture project after the release of Interstellar last year. His production company, Syncopy, is next attached to Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, on which Nolan serves as an executive producer.
