Deutschland, Äthiopien 2021 – Director: Sarah Noa Bozenhardt, Daniel Abate Tilahun – Studio Talk, Original with English subtitles

A portrait of Ethiopian obstetrics in transition. Despite the possibility of giving birth in a hospital, Hulu opts for a home birth for her fourth child. This is a brave step since patriarchal structures still hold power. Intimately and with great empathy, the film depicts the significance of female community. Andrea Erja
