Exploring the world of its tiny heroes in locations that are worlds apart – the Namibian savannah, the Mongolian steppe, a Japanese megalopolis and sunny California – Babies makes a universal statement with strength and passion. Babies is a visual and sensorial experience that will reveal the most basic human emotions. Apart from establishing shots of locations and seasons, and close-ups of the baby's physical environment, the film is composed of the unique moments that, as every parent knows, punctuate a child's first year and tell a fascinating story. Every shot tells a story by its content and its framing, confronting the baby with a world that seems gigantic, potentially hostile or simply needing to be explored.
