Description

ONCE WANTED portrays pieces of trash - the most underestimated creatures in the world - behaving like human beings. The trash struggle between their superiority and inferiority, their self-image, and their sense of reality, just like people do. The film plays with guilt, shame, and fear - not only related to consuming and nature, but to one’s needs too. Rather than pointing at anyone, it aims to cleanse the viewer from negative emotions, for a moment at least. ONCE WANTED is comic relief in the discussion on pollution.
