Director's Statement

The titular, shelter half, is the name of a type temporary tent that is used for concealment. These tents do little to protect the user from the elements but have the appearance of safety and protection. In a way the tent can be viewed as the false safety that we might hold that we can do whatever we please to our planet without any consequences. 


In the film, the protagonist is an environmentalist monitoring humankind’s impact on wildlife. However, humankind’s treatment of our planet has repercussions on even those that are trying to protect it.
