About the Film

IN UTERO is a cinematic rumination on what will emerge as one of the most compelling subjects of the 21st Century – life in the womb and its lasting impact on human development, human behavior, and the state of the world.



IN UTERO brings together for the first time convincing data that explains that we are not only our genes but a product of our environment as well. 

Through enlightening and oftentimes poignant interviews with experts and pioneers, IN UTERO paints a complex tapestry of the human experience from conception to birth. Tapping into cultural myths, popular movies, and technological trends, the film demonstrates how our experiences in utero – particularly traumatic events – preoccupy us throughout our lives, impacting our decisions and shaping society.


Stay tuned for information on IN UTERO II, a follow-up documentary about healing in utero trauma, which is currently in production.
