Screening at the Connaught for one night only! Don’t miss Peter Strickland’s latest outrageous cinematic offering.
The director of Duke of Burgundy and Berbarian Sound Studio serves up a delectable feast of art satire and black humour, seasoned with a little autobiography.
Welcome to the Sonic Catering Institute, a creative retreat for artists whose work occupies a place somewhere between avant-garde music and outré cuisine. Their journey at the institute is documented by photographer Stones (Makis Papadimitriou, Suntan), whose digestive troubles are as turbulent as the creations his subjects are producing. But relations between the bandmembers are deteriorating quicker than the concoctions they conjure up.
Writer-director Peter Strickland was once a member of The Sonic Catering band and Flux Gourmet draws on his experiences in that experimental group. But it also works as a wild and occasionally unsettling satire of the art world, the culture that rises out of it and the indulgence offered to its ‘stars’. Capturing the fictional band at work, and in a state of constant friction, Strickland presents another wildly original universe for audiences to eat up.
