Year: 2023

Genre: Documentary - Health & Wellbeing

Classification: TBC

Writer: Katherine McRae

Producer: Migiwa Ozawa, Shin Yamaguchi, Alex Reed, Karin Williams

Director: Katherine McRae

As freediving couple Sachiko Fukumoto and William Trubridge navigated maternity systems for the birth of their first child, it awoke in them a fierce realization about the lack of choice many parents face. Director Katherine McRae follows Sachiko as she connects with ocean women from around the Pacific, from Hawai’i, Tahiti, the Cook Islands, and Aotearoa New Zealand. Through their interwoven stories, the film explores the importance of community, reclaiming traditional birthing knowledge and the connection between caring for the planet and nurturing both parents and their children.
