Kartemquin Film Collection: The Early Years - Volume 3

For over 40 years, Kartemquin Films has produced documentaries that examine and critique society through the stories of real people. Their extensive body of work includes such films as Inquiring Nuns, The Chicago Maternity Center Story, Refrigerator Mothers, In The Family and Prisoner of Her Past. Now, in this third volume of a three-part series, you can experience some of the classic films that marked the early years of Kartemquin Films.

Marco - 1970

When the wife of one of the filmmakers decides to give birth without paid medication using the Lamaze method of childbirth - and coached by her own husband - she is confronted with disbelief, superstition and downright hostility. In order to find a doctor who will respect their wishes, the parents-to-be have to make arrangements with a hospital in Wisconsin and race over the state line when the baby comes. This frank and sensitive cinema verite documentary follows the young couple as they learn about natural childbirth, discuss their plans with friends and medical staff, and experience the actual labor and birth of their first child, Marco.
