Movie presentation of Vegas Baby
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 Amanda Micheli’s provocative documentary follows aspiring parents struggling with infertility and the high cost of treatments. They place themselves in the hands of a Las Vegas doctor and his annual contest, which offers the prize of a free round of IVF—with no guarantee of success. With intimate access to diverse characters on a high-stakes journey, VEGAS BABY repositions reproductive choice and explores how we cope with desire and loss.
