Baby, It’s You

Buy Tickets


(1997) dir Anne Makepeace [60 min; Digital]
In telling her own story about trying to conceive a child in her late 40s, filmmaker Anne Makepeace takes us on an intimate journey through the Kafkaesque world of fertility clinics, into the home of lesbian parents, to Christmas among Utah polygamists and New England Puritans, to her brother’s Appalachian goat farm, and on a time trip back to the dark age of illegal abortion.

“A fearless, touching account.” – Janet Maslin, New York Times

“A whimsical and completely moving meditation, simultaneously warm, funny, and painful, on what family and children mean in today’s ultra-confusing world.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“Glorious! Stirring! Funny and poignant. This baby from Makepeace Productions is honest and intellectually captivating.” – Marilyn Moss, Hollywood Reporter
