BABIES is a wonderful film which captures the essence of the journey of pregnancy and the wonderment of a newborn child’s upbringing and development.
“You see all these different kinds of parenting and cultural contexts in an intimate way, and it shifts your perspective. We let our cultures divide us, but this film really paints a picture of the universality of being human, which we often have a hard time seeing,” said San Francisco BABY Hattie’s mother, “You definitely feel like all these parents are doing the right thing because they’re doing it in the spirit that supports the child.”
BABIES is a family-friendly film that entertains the heart and soul. Be warned: the cute factor is high!
