The Quay Brothers
Introduce
Freaks

(Tod Browning, 1932)

Thu, Oct 31, 2013 7 PM

We asked the Quay Brothers to pick one of their favorite horror films to help celebrate Halloween. Their selection? One of the most notorious films in history: Tod Browning’s Freaks. Dramatically cut upon release due to its shocking content and banned in the UK for decades, Freaks is set amidst a tightly knit band of circus sideshow performers and follows a beautiful trapeze artist who seduces and marries a beloved dwarf in the troupe for his money. (64 mins., 35mm)

Residency and related events made possible through the support of the Wexner Center Artist Residency Award program.
