In labour we trust is a dark comedy that takes place in a dystopian future where science defeats aging and a very strict Birth Control System is set to avoid overpopulation: a dead in exchange for a newborn. Even upper class members, like Moira, must stick to this rule. A few weeks before her child’s labour, she joins Renato, a pregnant trans man who leads the Union of Killer Parents, to get her Birth Permit by delivering the needed corpses at all costs.

PuntoG is a part of Ventana Sur, a film-TV market-meet run by the Cannes Festival and Market and Argentina’s Incaa film-TV agency. PuntoG is the starting point to promote and draw attention to productions of Latin American developed by women and non-binary people.
