Description

Clearly influenced by early silent films such as Metropolis and Modern Times in both sound and visual design, animator and director Sin-Hong Chong offers a six-minute, animated depiction of the oppression of the laboring class and the crushing dream of financial success at the hands of a wealthy factory owner. This film explores the cost of economic success and the struggles of an individual worker seeking to provide a better life for his family.

A piggy pursuing dream in the big factory but in reality all efforts seemed powerless and even kill himself. The title refers to the song ‘Where have all the flowers gone?’. Original song uses the disappearing flowers, representing disappearing people in the war. Here is a symbol of piggy losing his mind in the city.
