“Well, why are they trying to kill me?” “Because of what you know.” Bulldog Film in the UK has reposted the official trailer for the indie film strawberry mansion, filmmakers Kentucker Audley & Albert Birney. This premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival and was one of my favorite films of the festival that year. This one already opened in February in the US, but since no one saw it then and no one even mentioned it, I’m posting this trailer anyway because I want to again draw more attention to it. In a future where the government records dreams and taxes them, a dream listener finds himself caught up in the dreams of an aging eccentric… kentucker audley and Penny Fulleras well as a goofy cast of characters including Grace Glowicki, Reed Birneyand Linas Phillips. The movie looks like The science of sleep (one of my personal favorites) – with weird designs galore, dreamy visuals, weird special effects, all with an anti-capitalist edge. It played me from all points of view and I fell for it. catch that on VOD when you can.

Produced by Emma Hannaway, Matisse Rifai, Taylor Shung and Sarah Winshall. This premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (one of my favorites). Music Box Films already released strawberry mansion in the United States in February 2022 earlier this year – it’s now available in digital. Bulldog Distribution will soon release the film in select UK cinemas + on VOD from September 16, 2022. It’s worth a watch.
