Technopolis 20 presents the new documentary feature film, Birth Days, following its successful screenings across the island, produced and directed by Danae Stylianou, on Wednesday, December 12th at 6pm. and at 8pm. The film will be subtitled in English.
Synopsis: A documentary about birth in times of excessive medical intervention. In a country where Caesarean section births account for 4 times the recommended WHO rate, one mother sets out to reclaim her own body and regain trust in the maternity care system. Has medicalisation of childbirth gone too far?
How do we give birth to our children and what are the reasons behind the increase in C-sections? Has labour become a "cascade of intervention"? What are women's rights at labour and how can a woman gain confidence in her own female nature? By presenting audiovisual material from natural births, interviews with health care professionals and a series of real events, Birth Days opens new horizons in the approach of labour as a unique natural experience.
Wednesday 12/12/2018 Screening Times: 18:00 & 20:00 Entrance: €6 Reservations are necessary at 70002420
