Margaret River, Western Australia
Birth rites is a one hour documentary drawing a comparison between birth issues in outback Australia and regions of arctic Canada. The interface between the two worlds of Indigenous culture and western medicine becomes problematic when women in remote towns are sent away from home and family to give birth in centralised hospitals. The content reveals the effect birthing issues have on the women, and their families and communities.
