Papa & Dada

In her new documentary, Daniela Ambrosoli, specialised in sensitive look, portraits four same-sex couples fulfilling their dream about parenthood.
Their stories are different when it comes to time and country, but similar in terms of the joys and difficulties of being a parent. Ways to fulfill the family dream are various – one couple used surrogate services, and another decided to adopt a baby. Searching for sources of information about raising a child, Brian and Ferd noticed the lack of a website addressed to non-heterosexual future fathers, so they started a page of their own. John & John were amazed by the wide opportunities when it comes to choosing features of their future baby, but finally, they come to the conclusion, that the most important thing is a happy and healthy baby.
The keynote of “Papa&Dada” is unconditional love. Just like one of the couples, Christian and Mimmo said: “being a parent simply means showing love. Period”.
