"Though the multiple metaphorical possibilities of the flower in "Roots" are purposefully ambiguous, something can still be said about it. The path of life may lead to places that were unimaginable at its beginning. A person's native environment may be abandoned, or demolished, but the source of one's being is carried within, and can never be lost. This is my first stop-motion animation short film."
