A look at one year in the life of four babies from around the world, from Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo.
iGEN Cinema is a specially curated programme of films for pre-schoolers and their carers. With support from City of Hobart, Wide Angle Tasmania presents each screening for free to introduce little ones to the big screen in a kid-friendly space.
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.
Chronicling the day-to-day lives of four babies in four far-flung locations around the world -- Mongolia, Namibia, Japan, and California - the film savors the wonders of the first year of life. Using very little dialogue and stunning digital photography captured at baby-POV level, the film celebrates universal milestones - nursing, eating, crawling, walking - and presents stark cultural differences without judgment.
