A FATHERLIKE FEELING
Becoming a father is major, one-time event in a man’s life. However, during the pregnancy, the delivery and the first months of the post-natal period, most of the attention is directed to the mother and the baby, with fathers experiencing the process more as privileged spectators than as main actors. Being about to become a mother myself gave me the opportunity to do research into my own family, filming the process from the very beginning to document my husband’s slow, gradual transition to become a committed father who wants to be as important for his son as I am. As a result, this intimate narration opens a window into a newlycreated family, and especially to Jorge, his feelings and the evolution of his physical relationship with the baby, in the context of a 7-month parental leave which created a unique opportunity for him to establish long-lasting bonds.

Therefore, the question is whether the circus is a merely a slowly declining phenomenon, or a tradition which belongs within our culture.
