Het zaad van Karbaat

Seeds of Deceit (Het Zaad van Karbaat)

Miriam Guttmann
We aim to touch our international audience with moving documentaries and fiction projects.
In 2017 news came to light that fertility doctor Jan Karbaat secretly used his own sperm during artificial insemination, instead of that of the agreed donors. Seeds of Deceit is an intimate film about two mothers and their children that are trying to live with this new reality.
We are really proud of our award-winning films and all the nominations that we received around the globe.
