DescriptionIn the summer of 1988 dry lightning sparked a fire in the parched and drought ridden landscape of Yellowstone Park, igniting a blaze that would over months scorch more than 1.5 million perimeter acres of the park. Song of Fire, the narrative poem that guides the animation, tells the story of the conflagration which raged unabated until a snow of such intense severity extinguished the flames. That winter surviving Fauna, exhausted from fire and weakened by hunger, die in greater numbers than those claimed by the fire. The cosmos turns from one season to another and another and life in the park begins anew.
