Institute Benjamenta, Or This Dream People Call Human Life

The Quay Brothers' Institute Benjamenta combines the fanatic and the mystical in a shadowy reverie as uniquely astonishing as any of their celebrated animations. Jakob (Tony Award-winner Mark Rylance) enrolls at the titular Institute - a dilapidated boarding school for the training of servants - and becomes embroiled in the world of the enigmatic siblings who run it: the sadistic Johannes Benjamenta (Fassbinder regular Gottfried John) and his sorrowful sister Lisa (Star Trek's Borg Queen, Alice Krige). The Quays' debut feature is a striking, exquisitely realized anti-fairytale that illuminates a fragile world shimmering with strange beauty and power.
