UK Premiere

There's little space and even less equipment, but humanity abounds in Ramona Diaz's masterful cinema vérité portrait of the Phillipines' largest maternity hospital, where upwards of 100 babies are born each day. The efficient staff show new mothers how to care for preemies without incubators, at the same time dispensing often unwelcome advice on family planning.


Please note: There is no Q&A for the screening on 14 June

All That Is will be screening before Motherland

An intimate exploration of love in all its ecstasy, difficulty and doubt. Through a sequence of unusual portraits and poetic imagery, five individuals relate their experiences of this perennial yet mysterious subject.
