I’m a huge fan of science fiction, but it’s rare that you get a good science fiction story that features a gay man in any meaningful way.
In new short film Credence, writer/director Mike Buonaiuto gives us a well-crafted story about John (Anthony Topham) and Scott (Alex Hammond) – with the destruction of Earth imminent, these two men must decide whether to send their daughter Ellie (Tia Kenny) away in order to save her.
The story is set in the not-too-distant future. An asteroid has struck the moon, resulting in severe weather patterns and destruction on Earth that is likely to wipe out all human life on the planet. Escape rockets have been built but only children that meet the right specifications (and with parents who can afford to pay) will be offered the chance of a future beyond Earth.
