Mida (夢見)

Animated fantasy by local director Chang Yung-chang (張永昌) has big ambitions to tell a story about the power of dreams. The story is about a high-school girl who has particularly vivid dreams of terrible events to come. She meets with a dream therapist Mida who has the power to enter her dreams and even link the dreams of different people. Mida’s work attracts the attention of government authorities who want to harness her power for their own ends. Mida finds herself in terrible danger, but also meets a kindred spirit, and the two must fight to preserve their freedom. The quality of the animation and visual design is rather crude, as is the storytelling, never achieving either a science-fiction slickness of something like Akira or the dreamlike whimsy of the works of Hayao Miyazaki.
