Sci-Fi Short Film “Colony” presented by DUST


(waves crashing) – Remembering my life and how things were is
like trying to hold water. But some things leave a stain. The year was 2131 when we
traveled to the colony. (anxious violin tones) After the war, we had nothing. So five years of labor for a home seemed like a pretty good deal. My sister and I were taken to a planet that they named Heaven. I hoped that the clean air
might help heal her lungs. (coughing) And I thought that if we could just push through, they’d let us live. (anxious violin music) We were all human, after all. (fearful breathing) Seren, you should eat something. – Rhian, it’s yours, you eat it. – You need to eat. – You waste it on her. – Take it, then. – They shouldn’t have been
allowed on board the ship. Only fit and healthy workers. I left my child on earth. But that one there, she’s
been sick since they got here. – Leave it. (anxious deep violin tones) (waves crashing) Well? – You’re late. – Yeah, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. – [Officer] Here. – Thanks. – Your skin’s getting worse.
– Yeah. Pretty soon you won’t want
to come meet me anymore. – We’ll just meet later when it’s very dark. You smell disgusting, go wash yourself. – Do you have access to
any kind of medicine? – For your skin? – No, it’s my sister, she’s, she’s sick and she’s just getting worse and if you have access to any, she’s not– – I’ll see what I can do. – Okay. (whispering) (deep violin tones) Seren. – Hmm? – [Rhian] I brought you some food. – I don’t want it. – [Rhian] You need to eat it. – [Seren] I’m not hungry. – How can you not be hungry? You haven’t eaten in three days. – Because I know what
you had to do for it. – [Rhian] All right, sit up. – You don’t understand,
every time you go out there– – Shh, check your voice.
– I don’t know if you’re coming back and–
– Be still. You don’t want everyone to hear, okay? Just keep your voice down. – I don’t trust them. – What if I can get you medicine? – What if you can’t? – What else am I supposed to do? – Stay with me. (anxious deep violin music) – [Unknown Voice] Rhian, stay with me. (coughing) – No, no, no, Seren, Seren. Get up. Seren. Seren. It’s okay. It’s all right, just
let me hold you, okay? She’s okay. She’s just got some petal
eyes in her nose, she’s fine. She’s fine. (alarm blaring) You’re okay. You’re okay. (low, anxious violin tones) – [Officer] Here. – Where’s the medicine? – An apple today. Maybe tomorrow. – No, no, no, but you said
you could get medicine. You said you could get fucking medicine! – I said I’d see what I could do. Isn’t that enough for you? – [Rhian] I’m sorry. – I have always done
what I can to help you. You think this is fuckin’ easy for me? – Sorry. – You think I can fuckin’ walk in there, you think this is my fuckin’–
– I’m sorry, I’m sorry! (tense rising tones) (Rhian weeping) – [Officer] When you talk to me like that, it makes me think, what’s the point? (anxious electronic tones) (water sloshing) (anxious rattling tones) (Rhian grunting) – [Unknown Voice] Rian. (anxious electronic tones) I see you. (whispering) I feel what you feel. I lost my family too. If you stay with me, I can heal you. I can change you. We can save her. I was murdered, Rhian, just like you. (screeching) – Seren. Seren? Seren, wake up. No, no, Seren, wake up. Wake up. (gasping)
(coughing) Last night, there was
something in the water. It was on my leg and the blood and… – It’s an apple.
– Yeah. But it was better. You know? It was a fresh one, it was, it was like the ones we
used to have, you know? – It’s okay. – [Seren] It really was a better one. (anxious electronic tones) – [Officer] Tomorrow,
bring me your sister. – You have the medicine? (anxious violin music) One day, people are gonna
talk about us, you know? As the founders of Heaven. – No, they won’t. We’ll be left out of the story. – Well, I guess we’re just gonna have to write our own
history then, aren’t we? (coughing) – [Seren] Who would read? – [Rhian] Seren, get down. – What? What is it? – Nothing, it’s fine, okay? Just stay here. It’s fine.
– Wait, no. Rhian, stop. (catcall whistling) – Where’s your sister? – [Rhian] Where’s the medicine? – What medicine? What’s she talking about? – [Officer] I don’t know
what she’s talking about. – Ooh, they all smell of shit. I’ll have to hold my nose. – There never was any, was there? – [Officer] Where’s your sister? – She couldn’t make it down the cliffs. – Ah, come on, don’t lie to us. We’re here to help you. – Get the fuck off me.
– Oh, ho, ho. (groaning) Hey, come back. – [Officer] Fuck! (screaming) (thudding) Get off her. (grunting) – [Unknown Voice] Rian. (whispering) Stay with me. – [Officer] Get off of her. (anxious violin, electronic music) (rattling tones) – [Rhian] I was given the
chance to start again. The chance to save a life. (thunder booming) Things are different now but the past is never quite washed clean. They won’t remember our names
but they will remember me. (tense rising ensemble tones) (whispering) (relaxed electronic music)

100 thoughts on “Sci-Fi Short Film “Colony” presented by DUST

  1. Why are there no machines to do the planting, you know, the kind that were invented over a hundred years ago? This is more paranoid feminazi masturbatory crap. "All men are creeps, all girls are hapless, innocent victims."

  2. Problem #1 Moons that large would be driving Tides 100's of meters high
    Problem #2 Moons as depicted would not be orbitally stable,
    Positive the story is compelling, and mutation at the end is done well.

  3. Sorry, no meat. Kind of like a blind date. No explanation of the 'keepers', what they were really there for, why their life was so harsh, nothing made sense nor was there any leads to take you where it made sense. So shes just going to go and rip the bastards to pieces. Lousy ending.

  4. My opinion at the very end they killed the more attractive one and left the slightly-less-attractive one alive, but I realize that's subjective.

  5. Some of these are a real mess that scatter in so many different directions without a destination. This one certainly fell flat.

  6. Great movie. The summary as per my understanding is people are being taken to make new Colony on another planet. Only the fittest go for work. But this new planet is full of mysteries and the lead role woman looking for cure accidentally gets a chance to interact with this fish like species which lives in water. This species is smart and can connect to humans as it has injected its blood into the lead role and now they talk. The fish like species knows that lead role wants a cure and that's why it lures it and gives her hope that it can cure the sister just stay with me…. Rest we all can imagine. The pine teeth could be becoz now her sister has been killed and she wants revenge no longer cure. Or the ending could mean that there was never a cure that fish just wanted to increase the feed for its species and that's why left a virus live so that it's whole other species can survive on that food (humans). But the former ending makes sense because she says PEOPLE WILL REMEMBER ME.

  7. She died and became a hydrid of the fish thing that was speaking to her. Idk. I think they should have just left it at the point where she died and that's it.

  8. Just when things getting somewhere… it falls flat. I would take that ending if there is a "progression" in-between the twist.

  9. Something looks missing, althought no what most comments say, ending. But I liked it.
    Sometimes is a matter of budget, I don't know. Unexpected but not wrong, you expect a cocoon's healing then you see that emerging… "A second chance", that's good.
    Maybe seeding more HATE so the lower viewers feel the thirst of blood instead of dissapointed.

  10. Great how we promote satanism without a blink. Witch craft, death, sex, slavery, revenge, zombies, drugs, authority abuse.

    This was an example of exception of sin and unrighteousness. "We are going to be in history for finding heaven" Don't be like these people the Holy Bible tells us where heaven is and it's not digging through the mud for bones and teeth.

  11. I will not call this science fiction, it's an interesting beginning for a feminist horror movie or a very clever feminist allegory of the present world. There is no dilemma, no exploration of future events. Even so, is not bad.

  12. personally, I have no problem eating other people if the need arises to eat = any soccer team whose plane crashed in the Himilayas can say the same. Apparently, fish-lady at the end had the same idea.

  13. So her sister dies and gets raped after. She becomes a space pirana. In a future with inter planetary space travel they are digging with shovels and have women slaves. Ghost luminescent telepathic alien pirana in the water happened how? Is kind of good at first and has nice photography too. It ends.

  14. Started great and ended up the usual crap with the usual if there is no end it must be genius thinking. More waste of my time and waste of potential.

    And why did the uniformed guys require breathing apparatus in the planting areas but not elsewhere?

  16. I could appreciate the concept, but there were too many holes to suspend disbelief . . . I give DUST a lot of credit for usually providing top notch examples of the artform. Every once in awhile the presented film of the moment doesn't quite match the usually expected quality standards . . . it's OK, on average the films presented by DUST are excellent, just a dud every now and then.

  17. That’s got to be the dumbest ending I’ve ever seen. What in the hell happened? It’s like There were edit at the very end and we missed what happened. What did happen? Crazy waste of my fucking time

  18. Is it utterly impossible for viewers to come up with their own theories? Does the writer need to hold your hand and explain every detail, or could it be they left things to individual interpretation? Part of the problem with audiences today is the need to have everything explained. If everything isn’t perfectly drawn out, people consider a film to be flawed.

  19. Wat a load of crap 😂😹😹😹😹 this is the worst Clíp ever Wat a looser who ever made this dum video 😹😂😂 i think a kid made it 😹😹😹

  20. suspension of disbelief suspended. weak set up. If she could afford a place on a colony ship she could afford medical treatment instead.

  21. For all of you that hate the ending, it’s supposed to leave itself open for a creative and hungry mind to fill in the gaps.

    This is a cleaver tactic to gain cult followers and hardcore fans.

  22. OK, getting sick of these movies that lure you in with such great stories, acting and sets, and leave you with no ending, a shit ending and no conclusion. Bottom line I am done with Dust, better things to spend my time doing!
