Discover two midwives, one Buddhist and one Muslim, defying strict ethnic divisions to work side by side in a makeshift clinic in western Myanmar, providing medical services to the Rohingya of Rakhine State. Over five years we witness their struggles, hopes and dreams amidst an environment of ever-increasing chaos and violence.
The film “Midwives” won a Special Jury Prize for Excellence in Vérité Filmmaking at the Sundance Film Festival 2022 edition.
