Cook, Fuck, Kill

Slovakian director Mira Fornay should finally be ready with her long-gestating third feature, Cook, Fuck, Kill, initially announced in 2014. Produced by Viktor Schwartz of Cineart TV Prague, Slovakia’s Juraj Buzalka and Mirafox, the title screened this past November at the Agora’s Works in Progress section in Thessaloniki. Fornay won the Tiger Award in Rotterdam for her 2013 sophomore film My Dog Killer.

Gist: Cook, Fuck, Kill is a dark social satire about one day in the life of domestic violence perpetrator Jiroslav K, a male hospital attendant addicted to sex and cooking. Pathologically jealous of his wife Blanka, he terrorizes her with violence, his actions ultimately leading to a tragedy in the family.

Release Date/Prediction: Currently in post-production, Fornay could ostensibly appear somewhere in the Berlin 2019 program, or otherwise premiere in Karlovy Vary or Locarno.
