520    In Japan, dead babies are commemorated in a mythological 
       ritual and known as water children. Because they never had
       an opportunity to carry out good deeds, they are unable to
       cross the underworld river and are trapped in stone 
       figurines on a riverbank. Filmmaker Aliona van der Horst 
       followed the unconventional Japanese-Dutch pianist Tomoko 
       Mukaiyama. There came a moment in the pianist's life when 
       she recognized that an end will come to her capacity to 
       have children. Mukaiyama created a multimedia art project 
       on the subject in a village in Japan. She made what she 
       calls a cathedral, constructed out of 12,000 white silk 
       dresses. She invites women to take a dress, wear it, stain
       it with menstrual blood (or, as she so poetically puts it,
       "moon blood") and hang it back up. Female visitors to this
       fabric cathedral meet here to talk about issues 
       surrounding fertility and infertility. Van der Horst tells
       the story from her own perspective. We also hear from 
       other women who talk about their experiences with 
       miscarriages, children, or thoughts about fertility and 
       sexuality. Ultimately, it turns out that the filmmaker 
       herself had a powerful personal reason for making this 
       dreamlike, poetic film.
