The Artificial Uterus: Birth Without Bodies

Director: Marie Mandy
Year: 2010
Duration: 56 mins
Language: French (English Subtitles)


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.
