    • Synopsis
    • Every day, in the maternity rooms of the public hospitals of Bogota, hundreds of women give birth. The medical institution is saturated, immersed in its routines and cannot pay attention to the needs of the families. The mothers are almost always alone, lacking of affection and comprehension. BIRTH is the representation of this theatrical scene, an old conflict between two antagonistic characters, the human being and the mechanics. At the hinge of these two realities, that´s where we are.
