From a media release:
Kentucker Audley and Albert Birney's Wildly Surreal Sundance Favorite
Scored by Dan Deacon
- Opens in select theatres February 18, 2022
- VOD Release to Follow on February 25, 2022
A hit at last year's Sundace Film Festival, the surreal sci-fi romp Strawberry Mansion is now available to view in select theatres across the United States. In a few days, it will also be available on VOD.
In 2035, our dreams are no longer our own--they’re infused with product placement and auditors assess 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 and encounters Bella Isadora (Penny Fuller), a lifelong dreamer who remains resolutely analog, circumventing the surveillance state with VHS tapes and homemade headgear.
Dan Deacon Premieres the Official “STRAWBERRY MANSION THEME” Music Video
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?
