Sunset Flower Blooming

HU Yuanyuan

Animated short film [China]

Set in China in the 1960s, the story opens with an old woman cooling off in her garden. As the sky turns orange with the setting of the sun, an evening primrose begins to bloom. Prompted by the sight of the flower, the woman recalls her childhood and dreams of the time in her life when she was at her most beautiful. Using Chinese-style cutout pictures, the work consciously accentuates the soft texture of the paper and the brilliant colors.
