HearT PumPing OiL (2014) is a short sci-fi/steampunk film written and directed by Ben Juhl for Dirt Capsule Films. Starring Jing Song, Kassie Rehorn, Sandy Kim, and Kasey Kempton.
In a common city, in the not-so-distant future, two young women carry out a plan to defy the system. Sparrow (Jing Song) must free Destiny (Kassie Rehorn) from a tracking device that monitors her every move and traps her in a life of assigned servitude. As their eventful journey unfolds, Sparrow is forced to decide between her love for Destiny and a final hope for what is left of mankind.
Not rated. 9:28 run time. Watch the teaser trailer (here).
My thoughts… HearT PumPing OiL is an amazing short film whose cautionary tale of defiance and rebellious love in an oppressive future demands to be expanded into a feature or web series. I love this film! Am I crazy? Absolutely!
