Strickland on Strickland | Episode 3: THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY

Welcome to Strickland on Strickland: A four-part podcast mini-series from Curzon, about the work of acclaimed British director Peter Strickland ('Katalin Varga', 'Berberian Sound Studio'), made ahead of the release of his new film 'In Fabric', and featuring conversations with the director himself.

Discussing the film are Strickland superfans (Berberians?), Catherine Bray - Variety, Film4, 'Beyond Clueless' - and the podcast's very own Steven Ryder, as well as regular host Jake Cunningham.

From the critically acclaimed writer-director of 'Berberian Sound Studio' comes a tale of passion and sadomasochism that penetrates the deepest depths of what it means to be human, in love and in control. Cynthia is an orthopterist who is seemingly firmly in control of her partner Evelyn through a strict, dictatorial fetish life behind closed doors. But as Evelyn's requests to be dominated become increasingly extreme, the true nature of their relationship begins to surface. 'The Duke of Burgundy' is a story about power and the exploration of discomfort that people will stretch to for the ones they love, told in mesmerisingly coruscating style by one of Britain's finest contemporary auteurs, Peter Strickland.
