THE LOTUS GUN (2015)

Short Film (25m)

Written by Amanda Milius and Jesse Eisenman

The year is 2077.  In a post-civilization landscape, two things are rare and valuable: guns and women. Women fall victim more easily to this harsh and unprotected lawless landscape. They have few choices of how to survive, either in the conditions imposed by tribal communes, depending on men for safety, or on their own, forced to depend on each other.
