Animator and director Kangmin King has created Deer Flower, a short film about a childhood experience that saw his parents take him to collect the blood from deer antlers, and watch as deer farmers cut the antlers off in front of him. Deer blood is still used as medicine in east Asia, “it’s known as a nutritional supplement for rejuvenating the body and increasing stamina. It’s not a common practice and can be considered a luxury,” says Kangmin. “Drinking the deer blood still lingers with me as such a bizarre and strong memory. When I told my filmmaker friends about my idea for this film, no one seemed to like it. Part of me knew this film would be unfamiliar and strange.”
