Whet your appetite for horror with the teaser trailer for accalimed writer-director Peter Strickland‘s (In Fabric, Duke of Burgandy) Flux Gourmet, starring Asa Butterfield (“Sex Education”), Gwendoline Christie (“Game of Thrones”), Richard Bremmer (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone).
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.”
Presented by IFC Midnight, Flux Gourmet will open in theaters and land On Demand following its World Premiere at the Berlinale Film Festival later this year.
