Orson Welles broadcast his radio play "War of the Worlds," about an alien invasion, on October 30th, 1938. Some folks missed the disclaimer at the beginning that assured listeners that it was a work of fiction. Now, if they'd listened longer, these folks would find that out soon enough. But as luck would have it, a transformer blew in Concrete, Washington, during the broadcast. What would you do?
This short film by Patrick Biesemans for Dust follows a curious young boy out on his own on that fateful night. -via Nag on the Lake
