A Child's Garden of Dreams — David Maslanka (35 min)
1. There is a desert on the moon where the dreamer sinks so deeply into the ground that she reaches hell.
2. A drunken woman falls into the water and comes out renewed and sober.
3. A horde of small animals frightens the dreamer. The animals increase to a tremendous size, and one of them devours the little girl.
4. A drop of water is seen as it appears when looked at through a microscope. The girl sees that the drop is full of tree branches. This portrays the origin of the world.
5. An ascent into heaven where pagan dances are being celebrated; and a descent into hell where angels are doing good deeds.
