"Here Comes Frieda": a young woman expects a lottery ticket to grant her an escape from a category 6 superstorm


My model O'Niell Cylinder, 2015

The DUST short film “Here Comes Frieda”, directed by Robin Takao D’Oench, presents a young woman Lilly (Ellie Wallwork) cowering in a basement apartment in a big city as a superstorm, category 6, approaches.

She has bought a lottery ticket for a lifetime in a paradise in low orbit (presumably an O’Neill Cylinder). It’s 2040 and climate change is closing in.

But other people come to her apartment to take the ticket away from her, or to show it fake.
