Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

Mes Ancenstres November 1, 2012

Thank you to Kaymet who was kind enough to tell me about this beautiful French film series, Mes Ancêstres (My Ancestors.)

The film’s creator, Frédéric LaBonde interviewed ten men and women around the theme of childlessness. The result is a beautiful series of poignant and inspiring stories.

Here is a version with English subtitles. Click on the eyeballs to hear each story.

    THANKS SO MUCH for sharing! VERY interestingvideos (different personalities, stories). I choked when I listened to one of the guys saying how he thought it was harder on women. And when another guy said that when he travelled to Asian countries, he was always asked about kids, I wanted to say, “I know EXACTLY what he meant!” ‘coz that’s what happens in Indo and every time I go back to Indo, I always have to prepare myself to be asked that kind of question. *eye-roll*
