COCO

Directed by
Lara Verheijden

Cheating, sex, motherhood and love.

In this short documentary Netherlands filmmaker Lara Verheijden stages an insight into her childhood friend Coco's life at home. At the beginning of the documentary Coco is due to give birth in a week. Over the course of this week, filmmaker and friend dismantle the old ideas of pregnancy's traditional joys and look to individualise the/a mother's experience.

What happens when your heavily pregnant friend has doubts about the decision? While they are taking a bath together, the girls talk about cheating, sex, motherhood and love.

Verheijden 'When you sincerely feel love for your subject, there's nothing about them that you cannot show.'
