[M]otherhood

([M]otherhood)
Inès Peris Mestre, Laura García Andreu | Documentary

2018 | 58 minutes | Spain

Women share their experiences and reasons for rejecting traditional motherhood ideals.

Synopsis

Having the physical conditions to do so doesn’t always make someone want to be an Olympic athlete, so why should the ability to procreate necessarily compel a woman to become a mother?

[M]otherhood questions the existence of the widely-accepted “maternal instinct,” speaks about regretting motherhood, and explains why motherhood isn’t necessarily an experience that women must have if they want to be truly happy. This documentary brings together several women who have decided to sound off on the subject, and whose reasons knock the concept of contemporary motherhood as an “ideal” off its pedestal.
