Film Synopsis: Guerrilla Midwife follows Ibu Robin Lim into the trenches of her work. From Bali, where hemorrhage after childbirth is the leading cause of death, into the Tsunami disaster zone in Aceh, where her battle is fought with only one weapon, love. In this culturally mesmerizing, heart wrenching documentary, you will discover why we must reinvent our protocols for pregnancy and childbirth in order to preserve our Planet’s Humanity.
Deja Bernhardt, the film’s director says “This six year project took me from the rituals of Bali to the places where people washed up after the Tsunami, without their souls. It took me to Santa Barbara, to sit beside the very midwife whose hands welcomed me gently into the world, and to Italy where one midwife was honored as a warrior for peace. My prayer is that Guerrilla Midwife may be seen by enough people to tip the balance of our planet toward a lasting peace, where we all wish to arrive home.”
