18:00 Google Baby, Zippi Brand Frank, Israel, 2009, 76'

The ethics of online baby shopping and surrogate mothers in India.

Travelling across three continents, “Google Baby” tells a story of the emerging industry of baby production in the time of globalization. Doron, an entrepreneur from Israel, sets up a new service on the Internet – producing pregnancy. He finds his clients an affordable solution by connecting them to surrogate mothers in India. Clients can choose and buy the genetic material online, then the frozen embryos re transported by air to India, where they are implanted into surrogate mothers. The clients appear only nine months later to pick up the babies. Today the technology has made the act of “making babies” completely independent from sex. And the globalization makes it more available. All you need is a credit card. Instructions can be found on YouTube.


19:30 The Market, Rama Rau, canada, 2010, 70'

Indian villagers survive by selling their organs after a devastating tsunami.

A slum in Chennai, India, is the home of the rejected and starving tsunami refugees, where surviving means selling a kidney. The film follows two parallel stories – in India the story of Hema who wants to sell her kidney to pay off family debts and to send her children to school; and in Canada the story of Sandra has been on the waiting list for a new kidney for 5 years. For one to get a new kidney, the other one has to lose it. “The Market” follows individual stories which raise a more important question of organ trade and explores this question from the Western point of view, as well as from the point of view of the people selling organs. What is the ethics in selling and buying kidneys? And what would we do if we were in a similar position?
