Warp Films Berberian Sound Studio Preview Sunday August 26 at FrightFest

Berberian Sound Studio:
Preview Sunday August 26 at FrightFest

 

The much anticipated second film of Peter Strickland, Berberian Sound Studio, will be previewed as part of the Film 4 FrightFest showing in London, Sunday 26 August.

Directed by Peter Strickland and Starring Toby Jones, Tonia Sotiropoulou, Susanna Cappellaro, Cosimo Fusco and Eugenia Caruso and co produced by Warp Films & Illuminations Films. This is Peter Strickland's second feature after his debut film Katalin Varga

Berberian Sound Studio will preview at the thirteenth Film 4  FrightFest. FrightFest is the UK's international fantasy and horror film festival which attracts thousands of fans each August to the London's west-end and prestigious Empire Cinema. 


Synopsis

It's 1976 and Gilderoy, an introverted sound engineer of a very sensitive disposition from Dorking, specialising in local nature documentaries, goes to Italy to work on the horror film ‘The Equestrian Vortex’ by exploitation maestro Giancarlo Santini. Only the cheapest, nastiest and most abhorred films pass through the run-down Berberian Sound Studio doors though and in this crazy, dodgy and alien environment Gilderoy composes bloodcurdling sounds from hacked vegetables, works out how to create chainsaw effects and mixes screams. But soon life begins to imitate art as both time and realities begin to shift – and Gilderoy finds himself lost in an otherworldly spiral of on screen witchcraft, off-screen sexual intrigue and sonic and personal mayhem. From Strickland comes an evocative celebration and delicious deconstruction of the Italian horror genre, full of sly references and a brilliant soundtrack by Broadcast.


Tickets can be purchased from the Empire Cinema website for the FrightFest screening. Berberian Sound Studio will also have a preview at the Soho Curzon Tuesday 28 at 6.20pm with a Q&A with Peter Strickland to follow, click here to book tickets.
