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.

The film will shoot in 2013 and is currently being developed with the assistance of the BFI Film Fund, which also developed and backed Strickland’s Berberian Sound Studio.
