A stranger arrives to a rural village and calls for auditions asking people to tell her ‘dreams, lies, memories and gossip’. Featuring a cast of migrant workers, hippies, Travellers, blow-ins and newly arrived refugees, we are ushered into the private worlds of people living between two cultures, sharing their desires of longing and belonging. Town of Strangers is a ‘hybrid’ Irish feature film using auditions, observational documentary and magical realist dream scenes. It is a documentary of the imagination, going deep into the experience of migration and home. Director Treasa O’Brien worked closely with the film’s participants to create these scenes and with Joshua Oppenheimer (Dir. The Act of Killing), the executive producer and creative advisor to the film in their conception.
