Helium is a sci-fi short film inspired by environmental themes shot entirely on location in the northern Italian countryside in summer 2018, over the course of 4 shooting days (+2 days of additional photography and second units).
The film is set in a near, plausible future. As the Earth’s temperature grows uncontrolled due to global warming, those who have survived the environmental disaster must find a way to leave the planet before it’s too late.
The film was brought to life thanks to the contribution of executive producers Francesco Manera, Paride Scanferlato and Marco Pellegrini and features an abundance of iconic outdoors and indoors location from the province of Brescia.
As global warming and atmosphere pollution are real and dangerous contemporary issues, Helium explores the nature and extent of such issues hoping to awaken the public attention towards future perspectives and potential solutions.
