Primal Screen Program Image

With restrictions easing in Victoria at last, this week on Primal Screen we bid a fond farewell to our run of lockdown specials, focusing on films you can rent or stream at home.

But we go out with a bang, as Paul, Flick and guest co-host Cerise Howard chat at length with one of the world's most exciting filmmakers, UK writer-director Peter Strickland. Along with Sally Christie, we dive deep into Peter's four features to date:
