From Focus Features’ impressive 2010 line-up comes the trailer for a new documentary titled Babies, directed by Thomas Balmes. I saw the trailer before Precious last week and was wondering when it would be released online. Check it out below or in HD on Yahoo.
Synopsis: The children are, respectively, in order of on-screen introduction: Ponijao, who lives with her family near Opuwo, Namibia; Bayarjargal, who resides with his family in Mongolia, near Bayanchandmani; Mari, who lives with her family in Tokyo, Japan; and Hattie, who resides with her family in the United States, in San Francisco. Re-defining the nonfiction art form, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.
Before seeing the trailer I wasn’t too interested, but this movie seems just too cute to ignore. I’ll definitely be seeing it.
Babies hits theaters April 16th, 2010.
