​Sand animation film "Angel on the Seashore" created by Kseniya Simonova together with Italian composer Giuseppe Morgante became the winner in nomination "Sand and Salt Animation" of Palm Springs International Festival in USA. The film was devoted to a little refugee biy Aylan Kurdi who died in the age of 3.

Kseniya Simonova:

- This sand animation was created with the music of a very talented

Italian composer Giuseppe Morgante and ProQuiQuortett as a tribute to a

3-year old Syrian boy Aylan Kurdi who died on 2nd September 2015, a year

ago. The idea of creating a tribute was born in the head of Giuseppe

who devoted his music piece to this tragedy, he called his creation

"Come, Aylan", then Giuseppe connected renown sand artist Kseniya

Simonova. She listened to the music, and studied the story of Aylan, and

then created a film based on his life and death inspited by this music.

We pray that these horrible oriental wars, the war in Syria will finish

and children will live their normal joyful life instead of dying in the

age of 1, 3 or 6 years... Maybe this international collabouration

artwork can help and say: "People! STOP! Look what you have done..."
