Water Children by Aliona van der Horst (Netherlands)

 

This is a finely composed auteurist documentary that combines several complex elements. It is a portrait of a Japanese pianist who is also an innovative visual artist. And it is a meditation of fecundity, childbirth and the experience of menstruation. We applaud the filmmaker's audacity – her courageous approach to a subject that remains a taboo in many cultures. She explores it with an elegance and sophistication that deepens our understanding of the relationship between body and mind.
