After more than a decade of making short films, Peter Strickland rose to international prominence in 2009 with his first feature film, KATALIN VARGA. His sophomore effort in 2012 was BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO, which is now being adapted into a play at the Donmar Warehouse. In between films he co-directed a concert film for Björk during her Biophilia tour in 2013. After his third film in 2015, THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY, Peter continued his exploration of sound and went on to write and direct several immersive radio plays. His most recent film, IN FABRIC, starring Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Gwendoline Christie, recently screened at festivals and will be released in 2019 by Curzon/Artificial Eye in the UK and A24 in the States.
