Gods Acre is a upcoming short film starring Corner Gas's Lorne Cardinal.

It's about a traditionalist aboriginal man in a world that is forcing him to change. He is a bushman that lives on the same land as his family before him.

Now, the global climate is changing and causing water levels to rise so much that his home is now in danger. He is forced to either leave his only home or adapt.

Rising Sea levels

With the populations living in coastal states, rising water levels can have potentially large impacts.

Scientists have determined that global sea level has been steadily rising since 1900 at a rate of at least 0.04 to 0.1 inches per year. Sea level can rise by two different mechanisms with respect to climate change.

First, as the oceans warm due to an increasing global temperature, seawater expands—taking up more space in the ocean basin and causing a rise in water level.

The second mechanism is the melting of ice over land, which then adds water to the ocean.

Crowdfunding Campaign

Gods Acre is a story that deals with the effects of a climate change world due to industry development.

How does one cling to their identity when the world is forcing them to do other? How does one in isolation deal with the catastrophic consequences of the outside world!
