This work is based on Chapter One of Hans Christian Andersenís The Snow Queen.The original text depicts a disaster brought about tools and technology.There is a connection between this theme and nuclear power plant accident that occurred in Japan in 2011. I attempted to create a new form of animation film through an interleaving depiction of the original story and a real accident.
