Water Children
Water Children
Dir. Aliona van der Horst, Netherlands, 2011, 75m, Documentary
Water Children follows the unconventional Japanese-Dutch pianist and visual artist, Tomoko Mukaiyama, as she explores the miracle of fertility and the cycle of life, by constructing "a cathedral" out of 12,000 white silk dresses in a village in Japan.  Mukaiyama's installation elicits confessions from its normally reticent Japanese visitors, many of whom have never seen art before, and in moving scenes they open up about previously taboo subjects.

Screening followed by a live performance and conversation with film subject Tomoko Mukaiyama and a reception.

Mabel's Saga
Dir. JoDee Samuelson, Canada, 2004, 14:25m, Animation
Mabel is juggling the demands of work, teenagers and an elderly mother. Now, she is confronted with a new challenge: hot flashes and chin hairs! Before you can say "estrogen," purple-haired Mabel finds herself the unassuming heroine of her own adventure... the adventure of aging. Mabel's Saga is a touching, funny film that celebrates menopause as a natural transition.
