WATER CHILDREN is an acclaimed, hauntingly beautiful film and an important resource for cinema and documentary studies, art and performance courses. Director Aliona van der Horst follows the unconventional Japanese-Dutch pianist Tomoko Mukaiyama as she explores the miracle of fertility and the cycle of life - sometimes joyful, sometimes tragic. When Mukaiyama recognized that her childbearing years were ending, she created a multimedia art project on the subject in a village in Japan, constructing what she calls a cathedral, out of 12,000 silk white dresses. While Mukaiyama's own mesmerizing music provides a haunting backdrop to the film, her installation elicits confessions from normally reticent Japanese visitors, many of whom have never seen art before - and in moving scenes, they open up about previously taboo subjects.
