(Short) Movie of the Day: Becoming Male in the Middle Ages (2022) by Pedro Neves Marques

Mirene and André are a heterosexual couple struggling with infertility issues. Carl and Vicente are a homosexual couple undergoing an experimental procedure in order to have a biological child. The film's classic cinematography contrasts with a science-fictionalised narrative, to deliver an utterly refreshing exploration of gender, reproduction, normativity, and the notion of family. A work that's food for thought - like the lab-grown meat in its opening scene. Winner Short Competition, Rotterdam International Film Festival 2022. Other 3 nominations international film festivals (Encounters International Film Festival, IndieLisboa International Independent Film Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival).
