A historical short from ZOE creators Samara Lerman and Gabriel Gonda.

Lily Cohen escapes the crowded tenements of early 1900’s New York to take on a demanding railway job. Determined to work on a steam engine, a position not traditionally held by women, Lilly faces the hostility of her fellow railroad workers while finding her own inner strength.

    I love this short. It expresses a lot of emotion in its short 16 minutes, and it leaves me wanting to see Lily’s adventures in Alaska. I really like the little details, like the Prince Albert can helping the telegraph to be heard more clearly.

    I also found that Lily’s last name Cohen (the name of Jewish priests) made an interesting parallel to her priest like work tending to the iron horses. I am not sure if that was intended, but it added a depth of meaning to the film for me.

    Thank you for this!

    This film had wonderful acting, a great plot, and stunning visuals. The only problem… it’s not feature length, and that, is a damn shame.
