Elysium reference

Elysium is an upcoming feature film written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, known for District 9. The film is a drama science fiction set in the near future.

About the film:

  • The year is 2154, Elysium is the home to the wealthy and priviledged of mankind. It is a space station free from disease due to the state-of the art medical care. Meanwhile the rest of humanity resides on Earth, overpopulated and ruined.
  • The film itself is meant to display political themes including: immigration, health care and class issues.

It is a good reference for my concept but one that I can’t directly comment on seen as the film is yet to come out. However it is good that there are similar themes to the one I am looking at within the media.
