"THESE ARE MY HOURS" Documentary
The #MeToo movement is about the abuse of women, and perhaps nowhere in American society is that more pervasive and insidious than in the authoritarian system which dictates how and where women give birth. Human rights in childbirth is plausibly the next frontier of the #MeToo movement, and THESE ARE MY HOURS, which is the only film shot entirely during a woman’s labor and told from her perspective, stands as an absolutely necessary, feminist response: a raw, intimate, sensory immersion into the primal intensity of the birth process as experienced within the depths of one woman's body.

For the first time ever... Witness the universally lauded documentary with a live score.

REVIEWS:
"Whoever watches These Are My Hours becomes a companion, a godparent in this woman’s labor, a participant in a small yet enormous slice of life. The film contrasts the true glory of the female body and its muscular and existential potential: Emily is not just a pregnant woman; she is the primal life-giving woman who wishes to do, can do and does do. This is, simply and in all its complexity, experiencing a revelation - of a new person, who will grow up to view the female naked body naturally, with respect and curiosity, in its beauty and ugliness, the way it really is." - Leda Galanou, FLIX Magazine

“These Are My Hours is not a documentary about giving birth -- it is birth. It follows Emily Graham through her labor, birth, and immediate postpartum. Or rather, we journey with her, inside her, as part of her. I'm not one to use hyperbole, so when I say that this film was revolutionary and groundbreaking and magnificent and shattering, I mean every word.” - Professor Rixa Freeze, PhD.

"I've never seen anything like These Are My Hours. Without fear or anxiety, it looks closely at birth, and the body that moves through it, to deliver something that is both emotionally righteous and visually profound. Like its protagonist, the film is unafraid of its own power." - Carmen Winant, acclaimed artist whose work My Birth is currently featured at the MOMA

"Nothing has ever captured the transformational experience of birth more than These Are My Hours. From the first note of music you know this is not simply a birth documentary, or even the beautiful telling of a birth story. This is a symphony of the utmost intimacy. And in our world of infinite landscapes, you'll never see one like this... the deep knowing of a laboring woman's body, her instinctual self.
Please watch this film. It's transcendent." - Whapio Bartlett, Birth Educator and founder of The Matrona

"These Are My Hours is the most intimate portrayal of a woman in labor I have ever seen. The power, strength, and everyday miraculousness of birth are all captured in this new homebirth film. I recommend it for all parents-to-be as well as practitioners seeking to expand their trust in birth-giving parents." - Anne Frye, CPM, author of Holistic Midwifery

"While other documentaries on birth have faithfully recorded and narrated a wide range of birth stories, Kirschenbaum’s brings the viewer close to feeling the sensations of birth... This ability to access the physiology of birth through film on the level of the sensory, as opposed to just the visual, is rare." - Anna Hennessey, Visiting Scholar, UC Berkeley

"I just finished watching it and loved it. In particular, I appreciate that Emily births with minimal commentary (and that the commentary is limited to her own), disruption, or politicization. The result is a portrayal of birth that requires patience in the absence of sensationalism and/or fear. The audience is presented with a birth that unfolds instead of becoming a glossed-over caricature." - Kim Dau, RN, MS, CNM, Director, UCSF Nurse-Midwifery/WHNP Education Program

featuring a live score from Lobo Marino
Named after the enormous Pacific Sea Lion, Lobo Marino's brand of experimental folk draws from a rich palette of international and folk influences.
Built primarily on harmonium, bass drum, banjo and various unique instruments and voices, Lobo Marino continues to evolve as the musical response to the continuous travels and ongoing spiritual journey of its members, Laney Sullivan and Jameson Price.
Utah Green
As a performer, Utah Green senses the mood of the audience and seems able to play the right song at the right time. She connects on a personal level, makes one feel as if she's singing for you alone. She is low key, and doesn't get excessively dramatic or passionate, which, thus understated, lends more force to the words she sings. There is no separation between her and the audience, and she sings from past experiences and present circumstance in a lyrical and playful manner.
