A writer, possessed by a terrifying story journeys into unknown and dreamlike places, haunted by the infamous Hum emitted from a strange factory.
FoolishPeople and The Cinema Museum invite you to enter into the heart of English Dreaming and engage in a live cinema encounter like no other. Explore the world of Strange Factories and experience the madness and terror of haunted cinema, as you witness the film unravel inside Stronheim's factory and its characters come to life around you.
The ghosts of the silver screen will join you in a mysterious ritual that will align you with the ancient paths of Die Geisteweige and immerse you in a film filled with magic, obsession and mystery.
Who is the infamous Stronheim? What exactly is the purpose of his hidden factory? And why have four performers fleeing from a burning theatre become enmeshed in the primal struggle of a story giving birth to itself?
Strange Factories draws on ancient theatrical traditions and mystical exploration, to wrench at the heart of what it means to be human.
Will you allow it to show you the wonder behind the moving pictures - the dreams of violent imagination? Will you permit FoolishPeople to conjure for you, as darkness falls, and the lights go down?
Not everyone can survive the violence of Creation.
To celebrate the announcement, Director John Harrigan and Producer Tereza Kamenicka will be at the London Archive Film Festival tonight at 7:30pm to discuss the project.
