Walking The Dog

Where The Poppies Blow


In 'Where the Poppies Blow’ we see a lapse of 100 years symbolized by the
growth of poppies. We begin with a scene of WWI and then we follow the growth of the poppy to zoom in on a passing flying drone. Through the poppies we make a bridge between the first World War and ‘modern warfare’
