Kurosawa - Dreams

Akira Kurosawa's Dreams consists of eight short films based on actual dreams of the director:
"Sunshine Through the Rain," features a young boy sneaking off into the forest on a rainy day to watch a procession of enchanted foxes. [WATCH!]
The Peach Orchard," a slightly older boy witnesses tree spirits performing a delicate dance. [WATCH! Part 1 ~ Part 2]
Weary travelers in "The Blizzard" face the elemental wrath of a snow enchantress. [WATCH! Part 1 ~ Part 2]
The Tunnel" finds a military officer haunted by the ghosts of his dead regiment. [WATCH! Part 1 ~ Part 2]
"Crows," an art aficionado literally walks into the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh (played by Martin Scorsese). [WATCH! Part 1 ~ Part 2]
"Mount Fuji in Red" is a fantastical cautionary tale about the hazards of nuclear power. [WATCH!]
"The Weeping Demon" portrays a similar story. [WATCH! Part 1 | Part 2]
"Village of the Watermills" brings the film to a quiet, pastoral end. [WATCH! Part 1 | Part 2]
