Film: Rehearsals for Extinct Anatomies Fimmakers: Quay Brothers In the fragile immobility of a room a couple wait, as twilight advances, alternately oblivious to and made anxious by presentiments of some brutal destruction being remorselessly rehearsed outside their door. Loosely inspired by an etching by Fragonard.
