“Becoming a mother is the most beautiful thing in the world”.
Anna is an elementary school teacher, she never had children, but her time spent working with kids and watching them grow, is her reason to live. Antonio, her lover, works at an astronomical observatory. Spending his nights in front of a telescope, observing the universe, is his reason to live. A series of extraordinary events burst into their lives: he discovers a new supernova and Anna—the pregnancy test result leaves no doubt— is pregnant.

Anton and Kajsa Textur | Sweden
The aim was to produce a movie that would map the patriarchal oppression, but also to give the international feminist movement an opportunity to learn about different thoughts and experiences. The directors wanted to create a collective narrative about how it can be to live as woman in a male dominated world. Additionally, they wanted to promote international solidarity between feminists around the globe. Feminists in Africa, Europe and the Middle East have participated in the film.
The directors have talked to academics, activists and ordinary people, and soon started to understand that these women, independently of their different backgrounds and experiences, had so many thoughts, feelings and memories in common. Through the process of making this film, Anton and Kasja have always tried to include the interviewed women in the process. And the participants have always had the last say in every decision regarding their interview. This is an important stand for the pair, as documentary filmmakers. When making a documentary movie, especially when the movie depends on people’s personal stories, they believe that the filmmakers have a responsibility to be earnest to the truth.
