Taking its title from a rare species of butterfly, The Duke of Burgundy chronicles the increasingly intimate relationship between wealthy amateur lepidopterist Cynthia and her newly hired housekeeper, Evelyn. As Cynthia’s demands begin to betray a sadomasochistic streak, Evelyn becomes less a domestic servant than an outright sex slave, submitting to her progressively extreme humiliations with a surprising relish.
Film screening & Get-together The Duke of Burgundy
queer loox is a series of queer-feminist films, created in Luxembourg in December 2014. As an umbrella term, “queer” challenges the assumed binary of sexual orientations and gender identities. “Queer” is about non-normativity, creativity, and diversity far beyond homonormative culture. In its intended role as Luxembourg’s queer-feminist platform and meeting point for discussion, queer loox presents a wide range of feature films, documentaries and art installations on a regular basis.
