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.
