Why watch this film?
A provocative short film that, through a very classical cinematography, addresses a speculative science fiction narrative, in which a heterosexual couple struggles with infertility, and a homosexual couple undergoes an experimental treatment that would allow them to conceive a biological child. Of breathtaking beauty,Becoming Male in the Middle Ages is a brief but profound meditation on family, gender, reproduction, and identity, whose boundaries are increasingly blurred.
Mirene and André are struggling with infertility issues. Carl and Vicente are undergoing an experimental treatment to have a biological child. Both couples explore what it’s like to build a biological family in a world where the boundaries between the natural and artificial are increasingly blurred.
