Slovakian filmmaker Mira Fornay's third third feature film, “Cook, F**k, Kill”, was presented as project at Sofia Meetings and now its world premiere was at the 23rd edition of Black Nights Film Festival in Tallinn.
The main subject of her story is the challenging theme of domestic violence. Seen through the prism of a metaphor, the film is an intimate story about family or “the most aggressive group within a society, with the exception of the army and the police”, as Fornay states. Through an absurd drama she’s following one day of Jaroslav K (Jaroslav Plesl), who’s obsessed with sex, cooking and is also a perpetrator of domestic violence. Pathologically jealous of his wife Blanka, Jaroslav employs abuse, deceit and terror that lead to a family tragedy...
Mira Fornay premiered her debut “Foxes” (2009) at Venice Film Festival (International Film Critics’ Week). Her second film, “My Dog Killer” (2013), won the Tiger Award in the main competition at the Rotterdam IFF, receiving a nomination for the European Film Awards, and was chosen as the Slovak national entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars. Her latest film “Cook F** Kill” is now premiering at Black Nights Film Festival 2019 in the "Rebels with a cause" competition. She is also coproducers of her last two films and owner of film company MIRAFOX.
Best of luck to Mira Fornay and her new film “Cook, F**k, Kill”!
