“Being Born(Umareru)” is a story of love woven from the trials and joys of four families and their experiences with birth. One couple struggles to come to grips with becoming parents because of their own childhood experience with parental abuse and strife. A couple lose their child on the day of delivery, while another couple has accepted a childless life after struggling overcome infertility. And one couple raise an infant with an incurable disability. This film will make you contemplate the meaning of being born, of being alive, and consider the bond you have with your parents, your partner, your children, your society, and yourself. At first glance, it might seem a bit too heavy, but the story is very heart-warming, and we hope you will come away from the screening with a very positive outlook on life.
We would like everyone gets the opportunity to watch this wonderful movie include parents with baby and small kid. We are offering the first session family friendly. It won’t be as quiet as general screening, however, we would like to take it as lovely back ground music of the movie and beautiful sound of our life.
