Full of inventive dreamscapes and wildly imaginative low-fi visual effects, Kentucker Audley and Albert Birney’s playfully surreal romantic fantasy, Strawberry Mansion, will be released in cinemas and on demand on 16 September 2022 from Bulldog Film Distribution.
Strawberry Mansion is a uniquely crafted and critically-acclaimed film packed full of invention, charm and ideas.
In the not-too-distant future, an all-seeing surveillance state conducts “dream audits” to collect taxes on the unconscious lives of the populace. Mild-mannered government agent James Preble (Kentucker Audley) travels to a remote farmhouse to audit the dreams of Arabella “Bella” Isadora (Penny Fuller), an eccentric, aging artist. Entering Bella’s vast VHS archive, which contains a lifetime of dreams, Preble stumbles upon a secret that offers him a chance at love – and hope for escape.
Strawberry Mansion is written and directed by Kentucker Audley and Albert Birney (Sylvio) and stars Kentucker Audley (She Dies Tomorrow), Reed Birney (The Hunt), Penny Fuller (All The President’s Men), and Grace Glowicki.
The film features a score by renowned electronic musician Dan Deacon (Hustle).
