Synopsis

L’utérus artificiel : une fable futuriste ou une réalité scientifique ? Dans un style visuel personnel, Marie Mandy fait le point sur les recherches les plus récentes dans le domaine de la procréation artificielle. Elle explore les enjeux biologiques, éthiques et psychologiques d’une telle (r)évolution. Une histoire qui interroge la valeur de la vie et le pouvoir de la science.

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
