Two of the most distinctive voices in the world of animation tackling one of the most distinctive voices in science fiction? What's not to like? Well, the fact that it's only a short instead of a feature, for one, but that's about it.
The Brothers Quay unleashed their latest creation - Maska
, based upon work by Solaris
author Stanislaw Lem - in 2010 with minimal fanfare but a trailer has now arrived which should draw more attention with it's typical gorgeous art direction and classical stop motion animation.
"Maska" ("Mask") is the latest animated film of Quay
brothers, directors and puppet animators, with the music composed by
Krzysztof Penderecki. The screenplay is the adaptation of Stanisław
Lem's novel of the same title. The action of "Maska" is set in a
technologically developed but, at the same time, feudal world. Beautiful
Duenna was created in order to carry out certain mission. However, she
will be forced to choose between accomplishing the task she was created
for and love.
