Birthing Humanity will be a documentary that carries the vision to be part of the paradigm changes around how we are bringing babies into this world and the impact this has, not only on the health of mothers, babies, and our communities, but also, on our whole civilization, future generations and most significantly, our earth.
Our vision is to share the profound wisdom of our birthkeeper ancestors and childbirth educator heroes through modern, rich and uplifting storytelling to leave our global audience full of hope, inspiration and new information. The film will create a movement around gentle childbirth and motherhood to inspire women to believe in their inherent power, to reclaim their autonomy to birth a child and better understand their responsibility in the cycle of life.
Our documentary functions as a stage for depicting the universal nature of birth and how much we all carry this imprint from the way in which we enter this world. In the end we are all the same, we all have been born. We have all been carried in the womb of a woman and her birth and her health had an impact on all of our lives.
Birthing Humanity brings peace by triggering resonance in us all that how we are born matters. Now we present the stories from experts, experts becoming characters and characters..
The vision and concept have grown organically, inspired by women & birthkeepers’ stories everywhere, deeply informed by the ancient wisdom of our ancestors and indigenous cultures.
The filming of a peaceful, gentle birth experience at Bumi Sehat in Bali led to the interviewing of experts, and our female and male protagonists. First shot in Ubud filming continued in Berlin and various locations in Australia.
We are currently seeking a production partner and the support of funding to be able to continue filming our proposed documentary series independently to enable the global sharing of our mission.
