Hina Matsuri, the Doll Festival, traditionally takes place in spring when the peach blossoms are in full bloom. The dolls that go on display at this time, they say, are representative of the peach trees and their pink blossoms. One boy's family, however, has chopped down their peach orchard, so the boy feels a sense of loss during this year's festival. After being scolded by his older sister the boy spots a small girl running out the front door. He follows her to the now-treeless orchard, where the dolls from his sister's collection have come to life and are standing before him on the slopes of the orchard. The living dolls, revealing themselves to be the spirits of the peach trees, berate the boy about chopping down the precious trees. But after realizing how much he loved the blossoms, they agree to give him one last glance at the peach trees by way of a slow and beautiful dance to Etenraku. After they disappear the boy finds the small girl walking among the treeless orchard before seeing a single peach tree sprouting in her place.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dreams_(film) :The Peach Orchard – from Akira Kurosawa’s ‘Dreams’
A nation that was brought down to its knees by nuclear bombs – remember ‘Little Boy’? Generations continue to suffer the ill-effects of those nuclear holocausts at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But what has that enlightened civilization that gives us the best cars and the best cameras learned from its experience? They built nuclear power stations of their own.
And then, Tsunami came.
Down the series of short movies, there is another 'dream',
Mount Fuji in Red
The film's second nightmare sequence. A large nuclear power plant near Mount Fuji has begun to melt down, painting the sky a horrendous red and sending the millions of Japanese citizens desperately fleeing into the ocean. Three adults and two children are left behind on land, but they soon realize that the radiation will kill them anyway.
