Berberian Sound Studio and In Fabric filmmaker Peter Strickland is back this year with Flux Gourmet, a bonkers new horror-comedy that IFC Midnight brings to the table this week.
Flux Gourmet comes to select theaters and Digital/VOD on June 24, 2022. You can catch a fun exclusive clip for the Berberian Sound Studio filmmaker’s new movie down below.
In the film, “A sonic collective who can’t decide on a name takes up a residency at an institute devoted to culinary and alimentary performance. The members Elle di Elle, Billy Rubin and Lamina Propria are caught up in their own power struggles, only their dysfunctional dynamic is furthermore exacerbated when they have to answer to the institute’s head, Jan Stevens. With the various rivalries unfolding, Stones, the Institute’s ‘dossierge’ has to privately endure increasingly fraught stomach problems whilst documenting the collective’s activities.
“Upon hearing of Stones’s visits to the gastroenterologist, Dr Glock, Elle coerces him into her performances in a desperate bid for authenticity. The reluctant Stones puts up with the collective’s plans to use his condition for their art whilst Jan Stevens goes to war with Elle over creative differences.”
Asa Butterfield, Gwendoline Christie, Ariane Labed, Fatma Mohamed, Makis Papadimitriou, Richard Bremmer and Leo Bill star in Flux Gourmet.
