Description:

THE CHILDREN OF THE UNDERGROUND, HELD CAPTIVE UNDER REDDISH’S REGIME HAVE WAGED WAR AGAINST 'THE ELITES'. REDDISH HAS FLED, HIS PATH CROSSING THE ONLY PERSON ABLE TO SAVE HIS WORLD - 11 YEAR OLD AIMEE. IN THIS KEY MOMENT WE SEE TWO PEOPLE WHO HAVE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT OBJECTIVES MEET. THIS SCENE IS AN EXACT REFLECTION OF JUDGES 4:18-23. DEBORAH HAS PROPHESIED THAT THE ENEMY OF THE ISRAELITES SHALL BE DELIVERED INTO THE HANDS OF A WOMAN. THIS IS FULFILLED WHEN WOMAN, JAEL, DRIVES A TENT PEG THROUGH THE TEMPLE OF SISERA, COMMANDER OF THE ARMY OF THE CANAANITES. DOES AIMEE FIND HERSELF HELPLESS TO DEFEND THE ONE MAN WHO CAUSED DESTRUCTION TO BILLIONS, OR DOES SHE RISE AND SAVE A GENERATION WHO AIM TO WRITE THE WRONGS OF THEIR PARENTS?

Biblical Connection:

I am using the book of Judges, more specifically Judges 4:18-23. Throughout history we have witnessed evil oppressors rise and capture a group of people who they either perceive may be a threat or they feel are insignificant to them. I aim to adapt this portion of scripture to show how this form of oppression would look 300 years in the future. There will most certainly be leaders who have evil intentions. In a world that advanced in technology and it's use of resources what would be the reason behind this form of oppression? Who would it benefit? Why would it benefit that group of people? How would God still use people 300 years from now? My aim is to take from what is currently happening in society now and realistically giving a projection as to what could take place. The short would be very similar to an episode of Black Mirror, reflecting a not so distant future.
