FMTV - The Beginning of Life

The Beginning of Life

Runtime: 96m 52s | Release date: 2016

One of the biggest discoveries in neuroscience is: When a person is born, it is not just a genetic load. We are formed by our genetics, combined with our relationship with everything around us. The Beginning of Life investigates what separates us and what is essential to all of us; how we can create a better society by investing in the first years of our children's lives.

The Beginning of Life is a film that shows the importance of the first years in the life of a child. Estela Renner interviews specialists in early childhood development and visits families with highly diverse cultural, ethnic and social backgrounds to show that an environment rich in love and protection during the early years of children’s lives is one of the best investments that can be made for humanity.

Featuring:

Jack Shonkoff
James Heckman
Raffi Cavoukian
Charles A. Nelson III
Alison Gopnik
Andrew Meltzoff
Gisele Bündchen
Vera Iaconelli

Great movie, but to say guy couples can look after the physical & emotional needs of a child .. as well as a "normal" couple .. is a long shot. No one really knows the long term effects on such thing. Not saying they can't, just saying boldly that it doesn't matter .. is dishonest.

Studies have been done, it's not just a random statement.

This movie moved me deeply, I wish I could have watched it when I was younger and having my own family, not that I think my child missed out but I would have benefited in the support of such insights and education this offers and shown it to others at that time too. It touches on so many aspects missing in modern lifestyles particularly western cultures. I shall certainly recommend it. A huge thank you to all involved in it's production.

What a wonderful enlightening documentary. Unfortunately in Western society we have lost much of what they are talking about...the community. I wish more people watched these types of documentaries to give them insight...
