About the film:

Premiered at the 2022 Berlin Film Festival. A group of experimental performance artists, known for their process of “sonic catering” (where they extract disturbing sounds from various foods) take up residency at a remote artistic institution, run by an enigmatic director. An outsider is tasked with recording the day-to-day rituals of the group, only to discover that he is slowly becoming part of their collective himself.

About the filmmaker:

“As usual, Strickland has made a sumptuous meal out of social impropriety.” 

—David Ehrlich for IndieWire

Peter Strickland is a British film director and screenwriter whose work is often reminiscent of the Italian giallo style thrillers. He directed short films in the early 1990s before taking a long hiatus from filmmaking to create culinary soundscapes with The Sonic Catering Band. After his return, his first feature Katalin Varga (2009) was awarded the Silver Bear for outstanding artistic contribution at the Berlin Film Festival, and he continued to receive critical acclaim with Berberian Sound Studio (2012), The Duke of Burgundy (2014), and In Fabric (2018). Alongside further short and feature films, he has also written radio plays and has made a concert film for Björk, which he co-directed with Nick Fenton.
