Seven minutes of excerpts from a one hour film from ten hours of footage taken during a much much longer labour... Lilla's Birthing seeks to undermine the misrepresentation of giving birth, to re-establish the birthing woman as empowered within her own labouring, not victim of it. The camera remains as closely as possible with the woman, the edit favours the process over the event, the humour , mundanity, excitement, joy, boredom and pain intermingle, the cyclical rhythm of the contractions setting the pace of the film.
