The Artificial Uterus, Birth without Bodies

Author/Director Marie Mandy
Producer The Factory Productions
Country France / Belgium
Length 56'
Year 2010

An artificial placenta, synthetic amniotic fluid… These medical advancements designed to help premature babies could soon allow the creation of an “artificial uterus”, and with it the possibility of fabricating human babies outside of a woman’s body.
The film is a scientific investigation about this life-making machine. How could it work? Why would we want to externalise pregnancy? Who will benefit from it? What will the consequences be on the future baby?
Award-winning film director Marie Mandy explores the value of life and the power of science in this thought-provoking and creative film.
