SHORT DESCRIPTION

    A globally acclaimed, award-winning documentary that takes you along the fragrant streets of Bali and desolate Acehnese refugee camps of the Indonesian Archipelago, where, Midwife-Ibu Robin Lim finds herself at a time and place where midwifery is put to the test. This culturally mesmerizing, and sometimes heart-wrenching documentary vividly demonstrates why we must change our protocols for pregnancy and childbirth, and return to a gentle, natural method. Featuring: Michael Odent, MD and Ibu Robin Lim.

An Ancestral Dream

Guerilla Midwife begins with an ancestral dream. In the dark before the dawn in Bali, the morning of the world, Ibu Robin Lim is awakened by a call to deliver a baby. What unfolds is the story of conflict, of one woman’s international battle to balance Science, Nature, and Culture in the protocols of birth.

The film captures the human rights issues of Maternal and Child survival, of how lives are sacrificed to poverty while the misuse of technology endangers our every humanity.

Following the day-to-day endeavors of a village midwife from the fragrance of her Balinese home, to Aceh, Indonesia. Visually the film moves us from the gentlest moment of first breath, to the horrific destruction of the Tsunami disaster.

Experts testifying to the importance of birth as the essential foundation for healing our planet include, French Obstetrician Michel Odent, Dr. Marshal Claus, and Midwife Mary Jackson. The facts are woven between the stories of women’s lives as they labor to bring forth the next generation. The generation that will either; live in harmony with nature or destroy it, wage war or create peace.

Guerrilla Midwife is a ninety-minute documentary film, depicting the courage of mothers and their midwives as they hold hands across barriers of language and culture, and guide us toward a reinvention of medical protocols. It is the story of a war waged gently in the belief that peace on earth can be achieved, one baby at a time.
