This is an animation film made from wood printing block. It costs more than a year to complete the film. Wood printing block has got a unique development and history in China, since it was a culture weapon in revolution, as well as the inheritor of revolution spirit. Thus, its form is more than wood printing block itself. Those animation frames tell us a special memory of a remote country, but the memory continues to repeat in reality.
