I simply can not wait to see this new documentary film by Thomas Balmes, depicting the early lives of four infants growing up in different parts of the world. It is a visually stunning and joyful new film that simultaneously chronicles the lives of four of the world’s newest human inhabitants – Ponijao from Opuwo, Namibia; Mari from Tokyo, Japan; Bayar from Bayanchandamani, Mongolia and Hattie from San Francisco, California. The movie will follow them from first breath to first steps, on a journey at once universal and amazingly original.
The film is scheduled to be released in the United States by Focus Features on April 16, 2010. Check out the trailer now.
