On September 23, 2014 documentary filmmakers Finn and Kristina were told that the baby they were expecting, Kapten Kiddo (Captain of the Belly!), had died. With the camera they depict their experiences from the day they became pregnant, through the baby’s heart disease and death, until the birth of their second child, Lage, and their wedding in August 2016.
LIFE! is a heartwarming and generous film about the desire to have a living, healthy baby, about grief and the fragility of life. But it’s also a film about parenthood.
