Strap yourself in and get ready for your mind to take a trip to Strawberry Mansion by Albert Birney and Kentucker Audley. The metaphors in Strawberry Mansion explode into dreams in Kafkaesque style. It’s like Fahrenheit 451 but with an unconscious universal mind.
In a future where the government records dreams and taxes them, a dream auditor gets caught up in the dreams of an aging eccentric
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. 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).
