In the Indian village Anand is a house where wannabe parents from all over the world can turn to: the House of the Surrogate Mothers. For approximately 15.000 euro, Doctor Nayna Platel makes sure a surrogate mom makes her womb available to childless couples. Because surrogacy is a taboo in India, people refer to the clinic as the Baby Factory or as Rent-a-Womb.
vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what's it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.
