"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.

Very well done right up to the comet run. Physics is physics the first rock impact would have totally destroyed the ship which caused the film to lose all credibility. The acting was solid, good characters, good script. The girl Isobel was stunningly done. The CGI was well done. Just cant get past the rocks and only an idiot would fly so close to a comet, ever heard of PROBES?
Haven't read all the comments (who does?), but most talk is about the pilot's reactions. It was the hologram who was crying before reboot. The pilot used It to keep his feelings of a past relationship alive. As his picture of her personality formed, the It became She. The hologram became a living entity and in the end understood, just as he, that it is memories which make us more than mere machines. A telling point is the small sour comment, near the beginning, about his being tired with her as he walks out to fix something. Who has not thought of how it would be to "reboot" a relationship? In this case he actually could. He was sad, but still had the time and possibility to start again. The final tears were from the hologram who knew exactly what she was losing.
Lovely story. I acutaly thought she was an android after he said "I'm sick of you" and when she says "you're no fun...but I love you anyway and his response is "ISABELLE!" as if to say "stop saying that because you're not real and it could never be. I love the subtle nuances of both isolation and relationships that have been shown here. Very intelligent, superb acting, directing, writing, direction of photography...I love every facet of this film. Great work peepz
An especially good short film. I am an old SF fan (62 mod) but have never seen any spacecraft with protection over the cockpit/bridge. I have always missed it, since i mean it should be that way. Congratuations, you have understand this and done something about it.
This has been one of the top 5 short films i have seen, and i'm impressed . What the mowies that costs 100 million do not have, you have. Thank you, i wish you a million new subscribers (i am) and a good weekend 👍 . 🧐
The emotion "TECHNÔlogy COMPUTATIONS QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT the comprehensive for the future evolutionary assembly sistem configuration... Hologram configured to be a very initialization especially if you are interested in vision for a new system interpretation.......... Ecc. Interactive machines emotionally for the LÎFE commonsense thinking, artificial consciousness, intelligence and the future of the human............. MÎND
Ok, I get that the point is the interaction between the two... but what the everloving frack would be accomplished by flying through an asteroid, banging against things, and flying out? Also, gravity on asteroids is a bit more complicated.
"Subject, Verb, Object" is perhaps the most bitter sweet thing I've ever heard. I think that line may have fallen flat for a majority of the audience if not for the stellar emotional performance by the actors. Both overt in the delivery and subtle in the reception. What a great moment.
If you like sci-fi like ion propulsion systems, here is a very early stage one, that lifts it power supply. This one has an orders of magnitude increased power to weight ratio over any previous similar ion drive:
Excellent. This one scores strongly on two points most DUST films are a little weak on; there was no excessive exposition, and there was a satisfying conclusion that the story actually led us to. Well done!
Nice short film... if I have to criticize... the ship seems to have gravity (judging from the way the panel collapses and the wires movement)... I think it is a bit unrealistic to expect a small ship to have a gravity engine?
Why does a spaceship have arabic writing on it? That's like a human colony on Alpha Centauri 2b, built and populated by young earth creationists.
It's not a coherent narrative, damn it!
But I do love that ship! I bloody well want one!!!
Which makes the arabic writing on his craft all the more strange and out of place. Though I guess it's possible it's there because he was passing through the muslim sector; A region of space colonised by muslims so they could have a place where they aren't bothered by reality-loving atheists...
+Razar Campbell Sure. I've read about that. The recruits are normally upper class folk, who regard conducting maintenance as something that's beneath them. Which is probably why the crewman here is a European; he's mostly a technician rather than a pilot (as evidenced by failing to dodge those rather large and obvious rocks). No honor or glory in this position.
I'm not going to argue the ghost or spirit concept of intelligence. I will say that this is much deeper than A.I., digital memory vs.organic brain cells. The video presents a dilemma when dealing with Alzheimer's disease and brain injuries. What makes us who we are and where does the person go when all memory is lost? Complete amnesia is rare but imagines coming out of a coma after years with no recollection of who you were. The heartbreak is for the caretakers and those who knew you.
