IN UTERO, is an epic cinematic exploration of the enduring questions ‘Who are we?’ and ‘Why are we how we are?’ The documentary, which premiered at the Seattle Film Festival 2015, is a 90 minute quest to bring to light unconscious and universal birth processes.
With reference to technological trends, cultural myths, classic children’s stories such as Alice in Wonderland, or popular movies such as the Matrix, the film demonstrates how our experiences in utero preoccupy us throughout our lives.
Through riveting, enlightening and often poignant interviews with experts and pioneers in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, and psychoanalysis the film reveals how similar theories of prenatal life have been in play since as early as the 1900s, and moreover points to humanity’s potential for healing on a personal and global scale.
The film confirms that “human beings are affected by their environment as soon as they have an environment”, as psychiatrist Gavor Maté explains, and “that means as soon as they are implanted in the womb”. As Dr Rachel Yehuda, Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience says: ‘It’s fantastic because the epigenetic idea of changes to the genes based on exposure to the environment at different intervals really provides the body with a way of continuously adapting to its environment.’
This is compelling viewing for anyone interested in psychology, psychotherapy, genetics, parenting or simply living a reflective life.
