Overview

In a darkened, isolated room are a man and a woman, with bright-lit chambers surrounding. There human dissection is done secretly, and it looks like the man and the woman are the next. What can and should they do? This puppet film, inspired by a rococo artist Jean-Honore FRAGONARD´s painting, seems to have action, but the real nature or the meaning remains elusive. Holding off a conclusion like that it evokes the possibilities of the individual in the system.

DIRECTOR
Quay Brothers
 
The Quay Brothers are identical twin directors born in 1947. They studied at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and Royal College of Art in the UK. In 1980, they established Koninck Studios with Keith GRIFFITH and created various puppet animations. Fascinated with and influenced heavily by the works of Franz KAFKA, Bruno SHULZ, and Robert WALSER, they have created many films with a gloomy tone and manner. The Quay Brothers have built a dreamy, fantasy-like world while working in various fields, including documentaries on Igor STRAVINSKY and Leos JANÁČEK, films, advertisements, and interludes. In addition to the films from the 1980s such as The Cabinet of Jan Švankmajer, Prague’s Alchemist of Film (1984) and Street of Crocodiles (1986), they have created different works, including Institute Benjamenta, or This Dream People Call Human Life (1995), The Sandman (2000), In Absentia (2000), The Phantom Museum: Random Forays Into The Vaults of Sir Henry Wellcome´s Medical Collection (2002), Eurydice: She, So Beloved (2007), and Inventorium of Traces (2009). Their most recent film is The Doll´s Breath (2019).
