“Imagine shouting into an empty well, and not even having an echo”
Planet Earth is dying. In the fallout of a catastrophic nuclear war, the few remaining survivors float aimlessly above the planet in individual escape pods, looking down helplessly as nuclear gas clouds dissolve the few remaining areas of land mass. One of these survivors, Mandy Sweats, has lost contact with the other survivors – and their only salvation seems to be a mysterious frequency, beaming in from a place way out in the cosmos. But the frequency seems to have insidious intentions…
Frequency From Deep Space is the 4th short film from ‘drag thing’ Mandy Sweats. Drawing inspiration from the surreal horror of JG Ballard and the camp silliness of 70’s Doctor Who, it deals with the gnawing desperation of isolation by dragging it to its most frightening conclusion.
