ShanghaiPRIDE Film Festival: We Want Kids Too《我们也想要孩子》

We Want Kids Too (Wij willen ook een kind)
Director: Mirella van Markus
Country & Year: Netherlands, 2014
Dutch with Chinese & English subtitles

Filmmaker Mirella van Markus seeks the ideal arrangement of having a child with her wife Claudia. Despite their strong desire to have children, there are worries and doubts. Can they justify raising a child in a family which society doesn’t always look upon with tolerant eyes? And as a co-mother, will Mirella have the same unconditional link with her child as Claudia, the biological mother? Mirella’s quest leads her to lesbian parents, children born of artificial insemination, and a developmental psychologist; she even winds up on the sofa of an adviser who counsels people with a desire to have children. We Want Kids Too is a personal, emotional quest in which two women share their worries, doubts, hopes and disappointments.
