Future Baby

by Maria Arlamovsky Focus Switzerland, Germany, Austria / Competition

„I just lend my belly to people“. A young Mexican woman gives birth to a baby in an operating theatre – and her job is done. The newborn is given to its new American parents. When many couples’ biggest wish won’t come true, modern reproduction methods are on hand to help. But it is not only surrogate motherhood that has become a feature of everyday life. Reproduction engineers are tinkering in laboratories all over the world in search of the ‘perfect’ birth control – the baby business is booming, it seems. Austrian filmmaker Maria Arlamovsky examines the trend by accompanying couples who want children, egg donors and surrogate mothers around the globe, and queries experts and sceptics on the subject. What impact does it have on our future society when biological barriers are broken and technology in turn meddles with the source of life – the ‘miracle of nature’? FUTURE BABY is a documentary as frightening as it is informative – a review of the presence of our future.
