About this submission

This film tells the story of Ontario Place, located in Toronto, Ontario. What was once a vibrant theme park, is now desolate, overgrown, and a shell of its former self.

Yet, the memories we had as kids still remain.

This short uses sound and imagery to show how time can transform memories and feelings, and how no matter how the past changes things, childhood wonder and nostalgia will always be in our lives even as we grow older
