Am Anfang

// documentary feature, 2013 //

IN THE BEGINNING is a calm examination of a much-discussed field of medical research – prenatal diagnostics. It is an intimate film about love, hope and existential decisions. And about the secret of human-becoming that pregnancy remains even in an era of technical surveillance.
