"White Lily" by Tristan Oﬁeld
A tense spaceship captain and co-pilot set out to investigate a comet, when a technical fault cuts to the core of their relationship problem…
Leon and Isobel are nearing the critical point of a long space journey. Leon relaxes, watching a hologram of blue skies and recalling a holiday he and Isobel had – but doesn’t remember one of the features she draws attention to, a vase with a white lily. The purpose of their expedition is to investigate a comet. Perhaps because of his fractiousness, Leon sets a ﬂight path that Isobel considers dangerous, and the ship is damaged in the process of its exploration. Buoyed by the success of their trip, Leon and Isobel discuss what they’ll do when they return to Earth. Isobel gets a word wrong, and it becomes apparent there’s something is amiss – she is a holographic companion for Leon, based on the persona of a former lover, and is suffering from the same fault as the ship’s other systems. Isobel insists that Leon reboot her, but he is reluctant to do so since it will wipe her out.
Their relationship is what’s keeping him together, and for Isobel it’s one that’s based on someone else’s memories. Isobel insists on the reboot, and Leon reminisces about the ‘real’ Isobel, for once addressing the hologram as if it’s her. These are their last moments together. Then the reboot is completed and the holographic companion that was Isobel asks Leon in a blank computerized voice what he wants to call her. Leon prepares for a very long and very lonely trip back to Earth.

Why did they travel years with an apparent absence of 20 years to investigate an ordinary comet? Why did the spacecraft have wings? Why did it fly like it was an atmospheric aircraft? Why can someone put so much time and effort into making it and mismake such basic information? Two seconds thought could have fixed such glaring errors. A far more plausible phenomena to investigate, a ship design that included artificial gravity, and manoeuvering that made sense. It would have been just as easy to make, and would have made the film less jarring. I can't hear the story over the noise of the nonsense.
NASA has proved that having a single man craft in space causes too many problems in the mental and physical health department. That's why they never sent only 1 man to the moon. They sent a team. And that's why they will never leave 1 man alone on the space station. I never understood why Hollywood and si-fi authors create stories about 1 man or woman alone in space. I can never suspend my disbelief with stories like this. Although this story has amazing visuals.
Sorry but the ending sucked. I was expecting more insight than "Back up your data." Maybe I was expecting that the so-called comet was an alien spacecraft that was re-writing her code? It could be the start of a cool horror movie...
What Fassbinder is it?
The one-armed man walks into a flower shop and says:
What flower expresses days go by
And they just keep going by endlessly
Pulling you into the future.
Days go by
Endlessly pulling you into the future.
And the florist says:
White Lily. ~~~Laurie Anderson – White Lily
OMG wtf is going on with the ship screen and holograms? Why everything must behave like in 1920?? Is it an old movie with blinking pictures? Why super modern space ship needs to have holographic screens like a TV from the beginning of CRT TV kinescope? If it is modern, does it mean it have to look like a disco party?
how sad. he had an almost perfect duplicate of his love, and he lost it all. the quality of this short was great! although i have to say flying through the canyon could have been done better by the addition of maneuvering jets; would have been a lot more convincing.
I think I'm partially sociopathic in that I don't miss people, not really. Not like other people apparently do. I can spend weeks alone, never talking to another human. I live alone far out in the country and prefer it that way. I haven't felt lonely in so long that I'd forgotten what that felt like.
This made me feel lonely.
Un limited energy producer invent after few year. In start world think this is the bestest invention this is more dangerous than nuke and human start race to collapse earth.
Device use same method but in 2 different way and I can't use exactly world but world is very near just unlock some rule.
Research not agree to think above limits and that day they will think it's happens. Mark my world you good days no more.
Wow, reading back people's comments has been extremely encouraging. Thanks to everyone for watching! My name is Tristan, I edited and directed White Lily. We have launched a Kickstarter for our next scifi Citrus. As part of the campaign we're giving away all our rushes for people to cut their own versions of the film. Anyone with an interest in getting their hands dirty might want to give that a go.
The ks can be found here http://kck.st/2y91Bvh if anyone would like to help.
Well done w/ White Lilly. Professionally executed, engaging and not smacking of amateur in any way. A rarity, even on DUST. There's an often subtle line between this kind of film and one that aspires to be like it. Sometimes manifested in the dialog, sometimes the cinematography, sometimes the casting, sometimes whether the film is too 'self aware' and 'self important'... you know it when you see it.
There are two things I'm not sure I understood in this: 1. Was Isobel a solid light recreation of a human he knew, hence her personality, the hotel memory bit and him mentioning a relationship sort of with her? Perhaps the point is that she would keep him remembering someone waiting for him back home?
2. Is he just observing the comet for a long time on his mission/job or is the ship damaged and that's why he is looking for some sort of problem and spoke about the length of time it'll take to get back home?
