There is no woman who is a mother by nature.
Each mother has her own stories.
Do you know what the mothers feel and think?
To show you an answer, we put together the voices of forty five new mothers in one documentary film.
Two years ago, Yukie Tsukada, a mother of a four year old boy came up with the idea to create a documentary film featuring on her own experiences of fears and anxiety concerning childbirth and childcare. If this was not recorded, she was afraid that she would forget all her feelings that she encountered along with the happiness of having a child.
She created this film with special members of the NPO Kosodate Combini presently raising small children. Film creation was a great adventure for a small NPO. After overcoming many difficulties such as fund raising for this project, they succeeded to put together the voices of forty five new mothers in one documentary film with the cooperation of Hideto Sonoda, the film director. Hiroyuki Nagashima directed the music.
