The Cloudlands project was part of Helium’s artist in residence programme. This film is the result of an documentation bursary funded by the Arts Council and the Cork Arts and Health Programme, HSE South.

The documentary is an intimate portrait of teenagers living with long term illness. The film explores hospital life and the role of artistic practice in healthcare.
