Directed by Irish writer Emma Donaghue, IMMACULATE CONCEPTIONS is an intimate, eye-opening account of a lesbian baby boom in Canada during a period of rapid legal reform and social change. It is told entirely through the hilarious, rueful, self-reflective words of sixteen diverse parents (of newborns to six-year-olds) and would-bees, living in Toronto and London, Ontario. They take different sides on every controversy (known donors v frozen, liking clinics or hating them, how much biology matters, being ‘two mommies’ or ‘a mom and an other parent’, seeing homophobia everywhere or nowhere), but they are all passionately articulate about this strange new world of queer family-making. The 16th Dublin International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival One of the strongest showcases of new LGBT cinema in Europe, the Dublin International Lesbian & Gay Film Festival provides a great focal point to meet, discuss and enjoy great queer cinema from home and around the world.
