Strawberry Mansion: Kentucker Audley and Albert Birney’s Sci-Fi (Sundance Fest)

An exciting sci-fi, replete with unexpected surprises, Strawberry Mansion premiered at the Sundance Film Fest.

Always bold and audacious, sporadically surreal and even soulful, this feature is a sampler of original American indie cinema at its very best.

In 2035, our dreams are no longer our own–they’re infused with the worst elements of unbridled capitalism, including product placement. It’s a new scary world in which post-modern technology runs supreme, and auditors assess and reassess unpaid taxes on our most private reveries.

Beleaguered taxman James Preble (Kentucker Audley) arrives at a run-down house in the countryside for a routine audit. While there, he encounters Bella Isadora (Penny Fuller), a lifelong dreamer who remains resolutely analog, circumventing the surveillance state with VHS tapes and homemade headgear.

As Preble works his way through Bella’s archive of the unconscious, he begins to fall in love with visions of her younger self (Grace Glowicki).

But all is not well in dreamland as dangerous family secrets and a rogue’s gallery of blue demons and fried chicken pitchmen threaten to set the lovers’ paradise ablaze.

Can Preble and Bella escape from the modern, monetized dreamscape and find refuge in Strawberry Mansion?
