During a job trial at a high-tech call centre, Jess’ competitor suddenly collapses. Her only means to save him is a state of the art computer system
When it comes to modern science fiction short films, Black Mirror became a fantastic source of inspiration. With singled out concentrated stories, the show’s twisted and dark format is a perfect formula for short stories. That’s exactly the type of film that director Harry Jackson set out to do. Lifeline is a sci-fi short film about Jess, and her trial for a job at a high-tech call centre. When her competitor suddenly collapses, her only means to save him is a state of the art computer system. The problem is, the art is in a terrible state. Starring Gwyneth Keyworth (Black Mirror, Game of Thrones) and Julia Deakin (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Spaced).
