We follow a same-sex couple as they prepare for the natural birth of their child.
We don’t know that they both have different opinions on whether the birth should be natural or taken care of by doctors. Is this just overbearing or something more sinister?
This short gets surprisingly brutal but also has a quirky edge to it, leading us into a twisted finale that feels plucked out of something like Midsommar.
Freebirth is certainly an original take on the differing ideas of giving birth and has very subtle social commentary which will also appeal to viewers.
Freebirth screened as part of the Soho Horror Film Festival: Pride Edition 2022.
