Jan Švankmajer meats the Brothers Quay at Der Wienerschnitzel

The Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In presents

Jan Švankmajer meats the Brothers Quay at Der Wienerschnitzel

Friday June 6th at Dusk
at Wienerschnitzel
800 Soquel Ave, Santa Cruz

A collection of short stop-motion animation films projected on the yellow roof of the abandoned and decaying Der Wienerschnitzel. Švankmajer is a Czech filmmaker whose stop-motion films are often surreal, nightmarish and yet comical at times. His movies often involve inanimate objects coming alive. Most of the Brothers Quay's films feature dolls, often partially disassembled, in a dark, moody atmosphere. Their films can also be surreal and haunting.
URBAN WASTELAND LOCATION Der Wienerschnitzel at Soquel Ave. and Caledonia St.- from Ocean Street turn onto Soquel Ave. (away from downtown) and the yellow peaked monstrosity that was Der Wienerschnitzel is a street past Branciforte Ave. on the right.

BRING blankets, pillows, anything you need to be comfortable in the great outdoors, friends, food and drink to share. Donations to support the project are more than welcome. (We are currently paying for new equipment.)
