À la vie


Chantal Birman, a liberal midwife and feminist, has devoted her life to defending women's rights. At almost 70 years old, she continues to visit those who have just given birth to provide them with care and advice. Between painful moments and intense joys, her visits offer a rare portrait of the thorny moment when mothers return home. (Festival International du Film Indépendant de Bordeaux)
