Strickland on Strickland: Katalin Varga | Episode 1 of 4

Welcome to episode 1 of Strickland on Strickland: A four-part mini-series from Curzon, about the work of acclaimed British director Peter Strickland, made to celebrate the release of his new film, In Fabric.

In this episode, Peter Strickland introduces his second feature film, Katalin Varga.

Banished by her husband and her village, Katalin Varga is left with no other choice than to set out on a quest to find the real father of her son, Orbán. Taking Orbán with her under another pretence, Katalin travels through the Carpathians where she decides to reopen a sinister chapter from her past and take revenge. The hunt leads her to a place, she prayed eleven years prior, she would never set foot in again. Praised for its sound design as well as its ominous atmosphere, the award-winning revenge fable marks British director Peter Strickland’s directorial debut.
