Heralded as “the strangest, prettiest, most mesmerizing debut since Eraserhead” by the Village Voice, Institute Benjamenta is the first live action feature from acclaimed animators The Brothers Quay.
The Quay Brothers’ debut feature_Institute Benjamenta_ is a pitch-dark adaptation of Jakob Von Gunten, a novella by Swiss author Robert Walser. Starring Fassbinder regular Gottfried John, Star Trek star Alice Krige, and the one-and-only Mark Rylance, this is a truly surreal, mid-90s cult classic.
