It’s been said that “to have a child…is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.” With this collection of films we examine the joys and struggles of being a parent. How we are thrust into positions of carer, influencer and teacher with no prior qualifications. The exquisite joy it can bring alongside the agony of getting it wrong. These shorts look at how we are shaped by parenthood.
