The cruel Town of Wonders mayor forces her poor and sick residents to leave. Orphan girl Bart survives by living in an abandoned van collecting garbage. One day she brings the garbage dolls magically back to life. The mayor burns out Bart and her garbage friends, who sacrifice themselves for Bart. Lonely and desperate, Bart strikes to avenge.
Born into a craftsman’s family, Sian has shaped dough since she was a child. Her work transforms the Chinese dough-crafting tradition to make stop-motion animation with beauty and cultural depth. Her art is inspired by her experiences and discovering new materials. While BART is her largest project so far, she looks forward to creating new works in the future.
