Djamila Grossman & Tom Licht Be Hers Be Mine A Surrogacy Journey

After eight years and numerous failed attempts to get pregnant, a Swiss couple decide to have their baby born by surrogacy. Although it is banned in Switzerland, they ask a woman in the USA to carry their child in her womb. Photographers Tom Licht and Djamila Grossman describe the journey of the couple and the reasons behind their decision. They join the parents for the child’s birth in Wisconsin, USA, because they are intrigued by the questions their story offers. Surrogacy mirrors a global reality where lines blur between technology, human biology, ethics, and law. The complexity of the topic is reflected in documentary-style sequences, stilllife motifs, portraits, documents, and interviews.
