Plum Flower Deer

  • Death and rebirth in the natural world

  • Tags:

    Yoho Hang Yue, an art director at Crush in Toronto, teamed up with his wife Queenie Zhu to produce this lovely tale about about a pair of Plum Flower Deer who are separated by an act of man but are rejoined in the afterlife.

    The Plum Flower Deer is one of the most auspicious, divine animals in Chinese culture. The Plum Flower Tree itself has been the subject of innumerable paintings and poems, representing courage and elegance. The film drew on Chinese tradition, and art. The film’s closing poem, by 12th century Southern Song Dynasty Chinese poet Lu You, tells of the rebirth of spring and the courage of the plum flower through winter.
