Song of Spring is an environmentally inspired story about a beautiful Chinese girl who was the beloved of a local farmer. Sadly, the farmer only admired her from a distance. One night, the girl (Hualing) was spirited away in a dream by unknown forces. She is carried over mountains with sharp edges, dirt, and sea. She eventually disintegrates into dust, never to be seen or heard from again. The farmer (Chaoxiang) is destined to wait for her forever. The sense of being carried away in a dreamlike state and finally turning to dust is what I use to represent the experience of an animal when captured and put to death, frequently in very gruesome ways.
