Where Have The Flowers Gone?

A Film by Sin-hong Chan

Synopsis

A piggy pursuing dream in the big factory but in reality all efforts seemed powerless and even kill himself. The concept is inspired by the classic movies of the silent era, Metropolis and Modern Times. The title is coming from the song ‘Where have all the flowers gone?’. Original song uses the disappearing flowers, telling disappearing people in the war. Here is a symbol of piggy losing his mind in the city.
