The beautiful short animated film was developed for children to show the life cycle of flowers.
“Everything is so in a continuous, endless cycle…”
“Many different flowers are growing beautifully and strongly in this world. Taking their roots in the earth, sprouting, blooming, pollination by birds and insects, living on in spite of rain, wind and storms. They pass on the baton of life, rebirth and decay. Everything is so in a continuous, endless cycle…” — This is the story and message of this animation. Directed by Tokyo-based botanical artist Azuma Makoto, Story of Flowers showcases the life cycle of flowers as a wordless explainer. The breathtaking floral animation was illustrated by Katie Scott of the Welcome to the Museum books, with animation by James Paulley.
