LOCATION: Minneapolis Convention Center, Auditorium 2
Mummy, mama and daddy; mummy, mama and sperm donor: The film Extended Family offers an intimate insight into two same-sex families’ lives, who found a way to create their families within a legal grey zone in Switzerland. Swiss law bans access to adoption and any assisted reproductive medicine for same-sex couples. Nevertheless, according to estimations, there are between 6’000 and 30’000 children living in rainbow families across the country.
