"White Lily": short film examines the importance of fantasy for people who travel alone
Dust presents a 9-minute short film “White Lily”, from Chrita Oldfield and director Adrian Reynolds.
A man on a space ship in interstellar space (it barges through some space junk) ponders what people will look like when he returns home in twenty more years. He has a girl friend on board, but we gradually learn she is a hologram, designed to fit his visual fantasies. One clue is that she names parts of speech instead of real words an articulating her sentences.
