On this episode of The Global Film Podcast, Editor-In-Chief and Host Diego Andaluz reviews Kentucker Audley & Albert Birney’s latest film Strawberry Mansion. Joined by contributors Valerie Complex (Variety), Jeffery Zhang (Strange Harbors), and Tessa Smith, they discuss their in-depth thoughts on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the film, among other notable highlights.
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 travels to a remote farmhouse to audit the dreams of Arabella “Bella” Isadora, 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 premiered at the 2021 edition of the Sundance Film Festival. Listen to our review at the Sundance Special episode below or here on your preferred podcast platform.
