Christopher Nolan to Direct a Short Documentary- Movie News

For those Christopher Nolan fans out that anxiously waiting for his next project can rest assured knowing two things.  One, the word on the streets is Nolan has finished a “comprehensive draft” for his next project and two, he has a new film premiering this August.  What is it you might ask?  Something to top “Interstellar”?  No sir, it is a short documentary feature about a pair of Stop Motion Animators named Stephen and Timothy Quay.

The documentary will be called, “Quay” and premiere during “The Quay Brothers-On 35mm Film” at the Film Form on August 19th.  Some reports are also suggesting that Nolan will curate a selection of Quay films that will be played at the event.  The films he will be curetting include, Absentia (2000), The Comb (1991) and Street of Crocodiles(1986).  Having a giant name like Nolan on board doing this documentary and presentation will give the largely unknown group of filmmakers a nice shinning spotlight and more awareness.

Here is a link where you can explore some of the group’s work at Fandor (with a subscription of course).  This is a nice change of pace for Nolan and I am excited to see what he’ll do with it.
