A Journey towards Birth

Maria Mac Dalland, Denmark, 1989

8 min.DK/Short fiction

A poetic animation of the fundamental relations between body and mind during pregnancy and birth. The attempts by the conscious mind to perceive the connections between the inner and outer universes.
The brightness of hope and joy - clouded by flashes of fear of the world into which the child must be born.
The thrill of experiencing the primitive forces of the body and the raging of elements during delivery.
