Four Babies. Four Countries. One Movie.

Everybody loves… Babies. This visually stunning new movie simultaneously follows four babies around the world – from first breath to first steps. From Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

Opening today, May 7th, 2010, at the Amherst Cinema, Babies is being screened Friday (5/7) –  Thursday (5/13) at 2:30pm, 5pm, 7:30pm &  9:30. Saturday and Sunday shows are at Noon, and baby-friendly shows on Tuesday 2:30pm.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker Thomas Balmès, from an original idea by producer Alain Chabat, Babies simultaneously follows four babies around the world – from birth to first steps. The children include:

  • Ponijao, who lives with her family near Opuwo, Namibia
  • Bayarjargal, who resides with his family in Mongolia, near Bayanchandmani
  • Mari, who lives with her family in Tokyo, Japan
  • Hattie, who resides with her family in San Francisco, USA

Re-defining the nonfiction art form, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all. Check out their official website.

    I am in Ontario Canada and am wondering if they are showing it in Canada. If not, when will it be out on video?

    Brilliant premise, looking forward to seeing it.
