THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY d. Peter Strickland, 2014 + Talk/Q&A with Chiara D’Anna presented by Sappho’s Cinema & Lesflicks at The Cinema Museum (05 JUN 15:30).

“A mesmerising portrayal of human relationships, this stimulating, stylish and sensual story of domination and co-dependency centres female sexuality with an all female cast. THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY is the most tender love story you’ll see in which a woman forcefully urinates in her lover’s mouth. Join Sappho’s Cinema and Lesflicks for an exclusive screening and Q&A with the film’s star, Chiara D’Anna!”
