Reproduktion

DOCUMENTARY

2008 | 16mm | b/w | Germany | english Subt. | 10 min

Society passes fear-fuelled values and conventions from one generation to the next and the most essential question seems to be: boy or girl?

 

Based on field recordings and interviews with couples awaiting their first baby, a sound collage mingles associative imagery shot at places that all have something to do with birth. 

 

”reproduktion” is a subtle, sensitive analysis of gender reproduction and the influence of economical circumstances on the features considered favourable to create a perfectly adapted human being.
