The short was made my Yunie Choi, a second year student at CalArts at the time, who describes it as "ravaged nature finding its strength and gradually recovering alongside the vibrant resurgence of life."

The Blue Umbrella 2/19/24
"I wanted the soul of the film to be a love declaration to the rain, that celebrates the rain."
One Man Band 2/19/24
