Set 10 years into a global drought, writer/director Tom Hammock’s The Well pits Haley Lu Richardson’s thirsty teenage survivor against Jon Gries’ ruthless water baron, who wages a campaign of violence to protect his supply. The post-apocalyptic thriller will open the Other Worlds Austin SciFi Film Festival at 7:42 p.m. on Dec. 4 at the Galaxy Highland 10. The Wells marks the directorial debut of Tom Hammock, who served as the production designer of such genre efforts as the Bastrop-shot All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, You’re Next, V/H/S/2, and The Guest.
