Synopsis


FUTURE BABY is a film about the future of human reproduction as it is happening right before our eyes. Maria Arlamovsky’s exploration takes her all around the world - to patients and researchers, to egg donors and surrogate mothers, to laboratories and clinics.

The hopes and wishes of future parents mesh with research on how to "upgrade" human embryos in the face of an ever accelerating rate of progress.

How far do we want to go?
