Pacific Mother makes a big splash at Australian Premiere

Health & Wellbeing Pacific Mother

Pacific Mother

Fresh from winning Best Feature at the Doc Edge Film Festival, the documentary Pacific Mother had its Australian premiere in Sydney at the Ritz Cinema, Randwick last week to a packed audience. In attendance was the films director Katherine McRae and Birth Time co-director Zoe Naylor who hosted an exclusive Q&A. 

Pacific Mother is based around Sachiko Fukumoto, a Japanese champion free diver and actress who is married to fellow-free diving champ William Trubridge. It’s an extension to the ultra-short doco Water Baby, which showed Fukumoto’s giving birth at home in a tub in New Zealand – Trubridge’s home country. The film follows Fukumoto as she travels Japan, Tahiti, the Cook Islands, Hawaii, New Zealand, interviewing midwives as well as pregnant women who want a divorce from the maternity ward.

This is what Zoe Naylor said after the premiere…. “If you loved our film, you will love this film… the underwater cinematography is sublime and the birth stories and cultural narrative will re-awaken what lies dormant within you….”
