Running time: 9'50"

Production: FR 2016

A complicated birth in a French maternity hospital provides a perfect opportunity to explore the notion of cinematic realism and the transformative effect of the filming of phenomena. The director delves cleverly into areas of cinema history and family history. Simon Welch’s film is both an interesting documentary and an experimental film with elements of humour, exceptionally accurate metacinematic observations, as well as philosophical remarks.
