Médecins Sans Frontières Brings Life to Childbirth

Creative 190 Add to collection

Five production companies work on the film giving an intense insight into childbirth and aftercare at a boarder camp

Médecins Sans Frontières Brings Life to Childbirth
This project for Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières is a joint collaboration between a number of companies and people from all over the world. The film follows a woman during childbirth and the affect this has on the baby. The baby is born not breathing, but the nurses proceed to administer CPR, bringing them back to life and into the mothers arms. 

What makes this project special is not only its intensity, but that it was produced between five production companies. This way, the concept and vision of director Rune Milton was brought to life and made sure the project was possible as a pro bono job. 

A large group of people spent extensive amounts of time and effort, without pay, to produce the project and bring it to life.
