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.
It’s directed by Gwenn Joyaux and produced by Aldana Aprile (Girovant)
