Summary
It's not like most little girls growing up in the 1970's and 1980's thought, "oh I can't wait to grow up and pick my sperm over the Internet." But the truth is right now only 6% of American children will grow up in a "traditional family" and we're lucky to have some of the best reproductive options worldwide. Director Deirdre Fishel takes an intimate, behind the scenes look at her own experiences and that of three other diverse women as they go on a trip they never imagined--to try to have children solo using donor sperm. A powerful tool for courses in Psychology, Sociology, Women's Studies and Gender Studies, the film documents women willing to struggle with parents, money, one with a new boyfriend, another with her African American Baptist church, in order not to miss parenting. In following these women over years, as they move from fear and self-consciousness to gratitude and celebration , the documentary adds depth and insight into the new options facing women today. From the strangeness and humor of picking an anonymous donor to the creation of joyous families of both biological and adopted children, SPERM DONOR X: A Different Conception provides a powerful challenge to old ideas about making a family
