Motherland (2017 film)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Motherland is a 2017 documentary film by Ramona S. Diaz. With the film Diaz won the Sundance Special Jury Award for Editing[1] and the Munich Dok.fest Viktor Award.[2] The Film shows Manila's public maternity hospital Fabella, one of the world's largest and overcrowded with up to 100 babies born per day.[3] The film follows several women from admission through childbirth, childbed and discharge from the hospital. Falling in the Cinéma Vérité Genre, the film provides neither narration nor context information to the shown scenes. Motherland has been released at Berlinale Film Festival in Germany under the title "Die Babyfabrik von Manila".[4]


The Philippine government has passed the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act in 2012 to provide universal access to contraception, fertility control and maternal care for the deeply Catholic population. In the film Motherland, the Fabella maternity hospital is the focal point of these societal issues.[5]
