A sonic collective who can’t decide on a name takes up a residency at an institute devoted to culinary and alimentary performance. The members Elle di Elle, Billy Rubin and Lamina Propria are caught up in their own power struggles, only their dysfunctional dynamic is furthermore exacerbated when they have to answer to the institute’s head, Jan Stevens. With the various rivalries unfolding, Stones, the Institute’s ‘dossierge’ has to privately endure increasingly fraught stomach problems whilst documenting the collective’s activities.
 
Upon hearing of Stones’s visits to the gastroenterologist, Dr Glock, Elle coerces him into her performances in a desperate bid for authenticity. The reluctant Stones puts up with the collective’s plans to use his condition for their art whilst Jan Stevens goes to war with Elle over creative differences.

"A sweetly intoxicating oddity about the limits of good taste."
- David Ehrlich, IndieWire

"The funniest of [Strickland's] films to date, it’s a fully realized, immaculately tailored creation which conceals a slow-burning sense of mischief."
- Wendy Ide, Screen Daily

"A compellingly strange blend of the hilarious and the horrifying. In Strickland's hands, you should always expect the unexpected."
- Lou Thomas, Time Out

After a long hiatus making culinary soundscapes with The Sonic Catering Band, here turned to film in the early part of this century. His first feature film, Katalin Varga was funded from an inheritance and shot and edited on a budget of £25,000. The Carpathian tragedy led to funding from the British film industry and the Milano-Dorking sonic anguish ofBerberian Sound Studio followed in 2012 along with the bondage romance, The Duke of Burgundy in 2014.
