Incredible sand-painting performance, via MetaFilter. You have GOT to see this. I don't even understand any of the language or content and I was about to cry like some of the audience members.

I was about to say that jinglymushroom could maybe help out with some translations, but my observation of the non-Cyrillic details tells me that this is from a TV talent show in the Ukraine, so I don't know whether this is actually in Russian or not.

Just go see.

The comments to the video include translation of the text: the final words she writes are "You are always near."

Very moving. Well-planned, well-told, very good at that style of art.

The Wikipedia article on sand animation has links to many of the more well-known videos.

A YouTube search for "sand animation finds a great many relevant videos.

I believe this is her: Kseniya Symonova, winner of "Ukraine's Got Talent" 2009.

(Found via the Wikipedia "Sand Animation" page)
