Circadian Dancers

Planted near a factory, Spikebush can't understand the rapidly changing environment. Not paying attention to happenings around it, the plant devotes itself to dancing to the diurnal rhythm. A beautiful Bindweed joins this dance. Unfortunately, the performance is not long, because it is impossible to avoid Human's influence.

Director Statement

I have spent my first seven years of life living in a small factory together with my parents. These times have strong presence in my storytelling. I have a special connection to urban places and weeds that have been forced to grow up between cold concrete building blocks, just like me. In this movie, I wanted to depict the world from those plants' point of view. How pointless, but disturbing the constant urbanization may seem to be.
