Flower – A Valentine’s Day Tragedy by Selorm Dogoe
What initially started as a friendly dare quickly transformed into a morbid story of love and death. It’s the story of star-crossed lovers and the flower that sealed their fate. It’s a two-minute tragedy created by illustrator/animator Selorm
Flower is a beautiful love story, in a morbid sort of way. It tells the story of a yellow flower in a little garden owned by a lean old man who nurtures and guards it with his life. What I took from the animation is, it shows the lengths a person can go to protect what he loves. It also teaches that not everything romantic is worth your money, time…or life.
Watch the striking animation below and check out this interview with Selorm.
