I watched the film at home. All by myself, in darkness and with headphones on. What an extraordinary experience. Strange Factories draws you into the story, it feels like a dream, something you cannot escape without going through it. The sounds and images creep into your soul. It shook my very own reality, left me in awe and in tears, searching for my own truth. It only scratched on the surface during watching the film. Afterwards it worked through me for weeks, questioning myself in a positive way. It awakens something, something that has been buried inside me a long time ago and wants to get out. I'm not going into the story as I think everyone should experience this incredible piece of art on its own. I've seen the film multiple times now and every experience is different and opens another door. Thank you FoolishPeople! I can't wait to see what more is to come.
