That Which Once Was
In 2032 an eight-year-old boy, displaced by global warming, fends for himself as an environmental refugee in a hostile metropolis. Haunted by memories of flooding that left him homeless and orphaned, the boy forms an unexpected bond with a mysterious Inuk ice carver from the Arctic (Natar Ungalaaq), who helps him confront his past. Heart-warming and visually stunning, THAT WHICH ONCE WAS brings a human face to the climate crisis and celebrates how those who’ve experienced trauma can find hope and healing through friendship.
