In the acclaimed, hauntingly beautiful film WATER CHILDREN, director Aliona van der Horst follows the unconventional Japanese-Dutch pianist Tomoko Mukaiyama. 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 about birth, death and sexuality.
