Dir Jeanie Finlay, UK 2019, 1h36, Cert 15Documentary
Freddy is 30 and yearns to start a family, but for him this ordinary desire comes with unique challenges: He is a gay transgender man.
Deciding to carry his own baby took years of soul searching, but nothing could prepare Freddy for the reality of pregnancy, as both a physical experience and one that challenges society's fundamental understanding of gender, parenthood and family. Made with unprecedented access and collaboration over three years, this extraordinary film follows Freddy from preparing to conceive right through to birth. It is an intimate, audacious and lyrical story about conception, pregnancy, birth, and what makes us who we are.
The screening on Saturday 31 August will be followed by a Q&A with director Jeanie Finlay.
