'The Lottery' is a loose adaptation of the Shirley Jackson story in a post-apocalyptic setting.
An isolated community has managed to survive by sacrificing one of their own to the unnamed 'outsiders' each year. 16 year old Julie is disillusioned -- this is not living, it feels like a slow death.
This short film was directed in April, 2010 while at the American Film Institute, Los Angeles.
