Prejudice is born from ignorance. Whether positive or negative, fear and awe toward the unknown trap human beings in many different caves of prejudice. Endless clouds of thoughts, which are brand new and already existing, are floating in the sky. Human beings are not really aware of diversity of their own, while they are acknowledging it of all the living forms including cosmic materials, flowers and even dogs. This animation tells its subject matter in a clear way: let’s throw away such a trashy racism! (Sue Kim)
