Institute Benjamenta, The Quay Brothers

Or This Dream People Call Human Life (1995) is a darkly beautiful and unsettling feature by The Quay Brothers starring Mark Rylance and Alice Krige. Institute Benjamenta is one of the first three releases in the BFI’s new Dual Format Edition package, containing both a DVD and Blu-ray disc.

This striking first live-action feature from the master animators is a beautifully-realised anti-fairy tale, adapted from Jakob von Gunten, a novel by Swiss writer Robert Walser. The Quays’ visionary style, stunning monochrome photography by Nic Knowland and Larry Sider’s rich soundscapes breathe life into every corner of a fragile world, which shimmers with repressed energy and hypnotic beauty.
