This chapter presents an interview with filmmaker Peter Strickland. His debut feature Katalin Varga (2009) was made entirely independently over a four-year period and went on to win many awards including a Silver Bear in Berlin and the European Film Academy's Discovery of the Year award. Berberian Sound Studio (2012) tells the story of a timid sound engineer (played by Toby Jones) who arrives in Italy to work on a mysterious horror film, mixing bloodcurdling screams with the grotesque sounds of hacked vegetables. But as the onscreen violence seeps into his consciousness reality and fantasy become blurred and a nightmare begins. The interview covered topics such as how the idea for Berberian Sound Studio begin to form; how he achieved the look and feel of the film; and Strickland's interests and aspirations.
