Father Is Not A Visitor (English Subtitles)

This documentary film from Brazil tells the stories of eight fathers and their experiences attempting to accompany their female partners – who wanted them present when giving birth – during labor and delivery.  The video shows – with sensitivity – the cultural, symbolic, and institutional barriers to involved fatherhood that remain in Brazil.
