Flux Gourmet, from director Peter Strickland, now has a teaser trailer – the film is set to premiere at Berlin Film Festival.

Part of Berlin Film Festival’s Encounters section, reserved for more experimental, avant garde film, Flux Gourmet sounds like one of the festival’s more intriguing offerings. It is British director Peter Strickland’s fifth feature film, and stars Asa Butterfield (of Netflix’s Sex Education) and Gwendoline Christie. Production company IFC Films has released a teaser trailer for the movie, so we can finally get a glimpse of what Strickland has in store for us.

Flux Gourmet’s logline states that it is “set at an institute devoted to culinary and alimentary performance, a collective finds itself embroiled in power struggles, artistic vendettas, and gastrointestinal disorders”. If that sounds doesn’t sound interesting enough, wait until you see the teaser.

There’s clearly going to be a lot of strangeness and a lot of drama in Flux Gourmet. The teaser alone makes it look like a melodramatic Master Chef where the contestants are members of a cult, and that’s frankly a rather interesting concept.

Director Peter Strickland is no stranger to getting experimental with his films, all of which have been very different. His last feature, In Fabric, is a horror-comedy about a haunted red dress. He has also directed erotic drama (The Duke Of Burgundy), psychological horror (Berberian Sound Studio), and co-directed Björk concert film Biophilia Live. 

Flux Gourmet will premiere on 11th February as part of Berlin Film Festival’s Encounters programme.
