Made entirely from personal archive footage and home video diaries, A Deal with the Universe follows director Jason Barker and his partner Tracey’s incredible story of how he came to give birth to his child, charting over 15 years of the highs and lows of their lives.
Self-reflective and bubbly, the camcorder is a natural companion for Jason - but Tracey is less enamoured of its constant presence...
A Deal with the Universe is a groundbreaking film in terms of its intimate insights into gender identity and the quest for parenthood.
Revealing some of the more complex aspects of the trans experience and pregnancy, it's an unusually intimate and passionate love story and shines a light on the emotional roller coaster of fertility treatments.
Join us on Tue 9 April for a special preview screening and director Q&A.
PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO ADVERTS PLAYED BEFORE FILMS IN THE BERTHA DOCHOUSE SCREEN. ALL FEATURES WILL START PROMPTLY FOLLOWING A SELECTION OF TRAILERS.
