Re: Sand Animation - Ukraine's Got Talent 2009

It is outstanding. As the article below explains, it's not easy to understand why that performance provoked such strong emotion among the audience unless you're aware of the raw sense of loss still felt in the Ukraine where one in four of it's population were killed during the invasion and occupation. The article also explains the images. Simonova herself sounds like a really lovely woman.

I missed it the 1st time around - thanks for bringing it up ( I was "on leave" for many weeks and had numerous posts to catch up - must have slipped though somehow ).

Re: Sand Animation - Ukraine's Got Talent 2009

I already posted my reply on youtube - nobody remembers about this lady anymore, moreover the idea of sand pictures is taken from other people.
It was just unusual for Ukraine and she won 1 million local currency. And spent them for buying apartment, then several companies used her talent for commercials and now , nobody cares.
