The filmmaker's point of view on what midwives experience today (she was herself a midwife for 5 years). An attempt to make the audience feel what they, the women, and even what the fœtuses, feel. A mixture, at times a fight, between the women’s wish - their right - to give birth in “this secret ceremony” where the sacred is not out of place, and the context of the highly technological environment which “accompanies” delivery, maternity and giving birth today.

This workshop is for those who wish to learn, professionalise their film production skills, or who are on the lookout for a career change. Through this workshop, we will learn what the act of filming means intellectually, morally and aesthetically, through all stages of documentary production, from design to editing.
