Christopher Nolan's next movie is the documentary short Quay

Posted on

Christopher Nolan’s next film won’t be an expensive blockbuster like The Dark Knight or Inception. His next project is much smaller in scope — and much shorter.

The director will debut a short film based on the work of Stephen and Timothy Quay, twin brothers who are masters of stop-motion animation. Simply titled Quay, Nolan’s film, which “reveals the inner workings of the Brothers’ studio [in London],” will premiere Aug. 19 at the Film Forum series honoring the twins in New York. 

Nolan is curating the Film Forum series, “The Quay Brothers — In 35MM,” which will include screenings of In Absentia (2000), The Comb (1991), and Street of Crocodiles (1986). Nolan and the Quay brothers will be in attendance for a Q&A following the world premiere of Quay. Tickets are already available
