Description
For her fifth feature length documentary, director Ramona Diaz reinforces her niche in the industry as a driving force in documentary cinema. The film takes us into an almost claustrophobic yet intimate experience inside one of the world's busiest maternity wards, Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila. Presenting the story in its purest verite form, the film opens with the hospital staff doing their perfunctory roles and then moves fluidly into a sobering look into humanity and motherhood. Followed by a conversation with filmmaker Ramona Diaz, as part of a tribute to her career.
