Hi! My name is Faye and I will be your guide through Amsterdam for the day! Enjoys randomness chat, good banter and will help you find the best dealers in fun, food and adventure.

A film that takes a story beyond realism into the universe of fantasy and imagination is a magical adventure. A storyteller that is able to show you a world, different from the one we live in, is a blissful experience. The child within is reborn and it provides an insight into dimensions you would have never been able to travel to on your own. Well, you might with an extensive collection of hallucinogens or if you are blessed with an elaborate imagination. Sadly, not all of us are sanctified with a mind that can take us far and beyond, but luckily the invention of film provides the ability to take anyone and everyone along for the ride.
