Sand and flower. The title is related with the pome of A Grain of Sand from William Blake, which is one of my favorite pomes This is based on Haimingwei's novel, the snow of Kilimanjaro. Whether animals can soothe our hearts, can they let us be redeemed? The animation is based on the footsteps of death in the snow of Kilimanjaro. It tells the story of the man to review the African grasslands and his life before dying. The footsteps of death make people think about where our lives will eventually go. In animation, death are represented by natural objects, from vultures to hyenas, to shadows in the film. At the end of the animation, the man dies, and the god of nature takes him to the eternity.
