Sci Fi Shorts: Embers and Dust (Presented by DUST)

By | April 29, 2018

Description: For a curious young boy, The War of the Worlds is just the beginning. On the evening of October 30th, 1938 Orson Welles’ voice traveled far across the radio waves, bringing word of an invading alien army from Mars. The theatricality and delivery of the performance, along with recent memories of the Hindenburg disaster (one year prior), sent many listeners into a panic. Unfortunate coincidence would fall upon the town of Concrete WA where, at the height of the invading alien attack, a power transformer blew out sending the entire town and surrounding areas into darkness.

Credits: Patrick Biesemans (Writer / Director)

Starring: Joel Nagel, Virginia Logan, Henry Gagliardi

Comments: A nice piece of retro-sci fi with a very cinematic feel to it. Seems almost like it could have been part of a larger Spielberg-type film and I’d like to see this one expanded to feature length.
