Jakob von Gunten (Mark Rylance) is admitted to The Institute Benjamenta, a peculiar and isolated school for servants. Whilst learning the submissive art of servitude, Jakob gradually uncovers the Institute’s secrets. Adapted from a novel by remarkable Swiss writer Robert Walser, Institute Benjamenta is the striking live-action feature debut off the acclaimed animators, the Quay Brothers. Their distinctive style, enriched by Nic Knowland’s beautifully controlled photography and Larry Sider’s exquisite soundscapes, breathes life into every aspect of this dream-like ‘anti-fairytale’.
‘unmistakable, startling and seductive’ Kim Newman, Empire
‘with the Institute Benjamenta, the brothers’ work pierces through to the nerve in a new way, stirring the depths of sexual curiosity and emotional unease’ The Guardian
