About the Movie
From Executive Producer Morgan Spurlock. Some think an in vitro fertilization contest sounds crazy, but countless Americans desperate to start a family believe this social media experiment is their only hope. Oscar-nominated director Amanda Micheli's provocative documentary follows several aspiring parents who desperately want to have a baby, but are struggling with infertility and the high cost of treatments. Vegas Baby navigates the complexities of America's burgeoning fertility industry and unveils the class disparity within a topic that is often clouded by judgment and stereotypes.
Brings fertility issues to life
Whether you're struggling with fertility issues, or may know someone that is, this documentary is thought provoking and attention capturing. It follows a handful of people through their journeys and attempts to win a free IVF cycle from a Vegas fertility center. Raw, emotional, awkward, funny, and insightful all at once. Highly recommend!
My husband and I struggled with infertility for 5 years before our miracle boys were born. This video really hit home and did a great job of sharing what people go through. I wish this was around when we were going through it- I felt as if I was all alone as you did not talk about it back then!
Vegas Baby is a fascinating and compassionate account of two couples and a single lesbian as each struggles to start a family. It is also a provocative exploration of an extreme corner of American health care that raises eithical and moral questions for the viewer. The filmmaker gains her subjects' deep trust and intiamte access to their journeys, showing them confronting emotional and economic adversity without sentimentalizind their courage or overlooking their (often wry) self-awareness and sense of humor. This delicate balance is in evidence throughout Vegas Baby, which is also a beautifully crafted film. The image of the Pyramid in Las Vegas, with its connotations of the longing for immortality, hovers over the subjects' stories, which are as diverse as they could possibly be. You don't have to be interested in or suffering from infertility to engage with this compelling film and its universal themes. See it!
