  • États-Unis, Philippines | 2017 | 94 minutes
  • Un film de Ramona S. Diaz

En nous emmenant au cœur de la maternité de l'hôpital le plus surchargé de la planète, on est, en tant que spectateur, abaissé au rang d'étranger invisible noyé dans le courant de l'activité de l'établissement. Au premier abord, les gens à l'écran nous paraissent étrangers. Alors que le film défile, on se retrouve intimement absorbé, ce qui rend les héroïnes de cette histoire de plus en plus familières.

This stirring vérité portrait takes us into the heart of the planet’s busiest maternity hospital—a world unto itself in the Philippines. Unseen observers in this frenetic and understaffed landscape, we enter hectic birthing rooms and pass through overcrowded hallways bursting with life. Babies are lost and found, and multiple mothers share a single bed.
The camera glides intimately and effortlessly around the hospital, unlocking nuances of this intricate ecosystem. There is a remarkably calm air of acceptance to this tumultuous scene, that can only be understood by a mother on her seventh child. Despite the harsh, unsanitary circumstances a supportive community of women - from doctors and nurses to social workers - makes this world thrive. Imbued with optimism, humor, and a specific type of strength, mothers exit the doors of the hospital and return to the bustling street outside. Through her sensitive documentation of these personal journeys to motherhood, filmmaker Ramona S. Diaz reveals larger truths about the lack of reproductive health care policy in one of the most populous countries in the world.
