What Once Was is an imaginary portrayal of friendship and masculinity. The series is a vivid portrait of young adults in several European countries, carefully stylized, but still very close to my sense of friendship.


“The series shows a world in which we acknowledge that everything and everyone is connected to each other, with an emphasis on the connection to nature. One should have the freedom to give their own meaning to those connections, however, stereotypes limit this freedom. With What Once Was, I want to show that masculinity eventually is all about humanity, and that humanity subsequently is always associated with a vulnerability and dependency to nature”.
