Poster And First Still For BERBERIAN Director's DUKE OF BURGUNDY
Berberian Sound Studio director Peter Strickland is now in post on his new feature, The Duke Of Burgundy, and we've got a look at the first poster and still from the film. Borgen's Sidse Babett Knudsen stars with Chiara d'Anna with Ben Wheatley's Rook Films producing. Here's how Strickland and d'Anna described the film when it was first announced:
The Duke of Burgundy, a dark melodrama, is set to star Chiara D'Anna (Berberian Sound Studio) as an amateur lepidopterist whose wayward desires test the limits of her lover's tolerance. "After damaging my eardrums with too many screams during the Berberian sound mix, I wanted to make something tender and quiet, but also quite intense. It's a simple love story about a devoted couple whose intimate needs are rarely in harmony" says Strickland.
