In this unusual romance, hand-tinted sand, becomes a metaphor for two souls as they join and separate.

A lonely fish, hooked by an angler’s line, encounters another in the same dire situation. As the two struggle, they develop an inevitable, entangling attraction. Is it love or merely a will to survive?

With a radical new approach to sand-animation, Corrie Francis Parks tells this fluid tale of love and entanglement.

Corrie Francis Parks is a freelance animator and photographer based in Montana. An alumna of Dartmouth College and University of Southern California, her award-winning films have been exhibited at over 100 national and international film festivals on every continent except Antarctica. She has been an artist in residence at the MacDowell Colony and Fundación Valparaíso, a Fulbright Fellow to New Zealand, and a recipient of a Sierra Foundation Grant for her work in experimental photography. Corrie’s animation and photography emphasizes the integration of digital and traditional mediums and a dialogue between technique and mediums. She has worked with sand, paint on glass, cut-outs and hand-drawn mediums. When not in her studio, you can find Corrie wandering in and out of the closest mountain range.
