"CREATING FREEDOM: THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH", "Lez-Bi En", "Kindness Boomerang", and "Admissions"
FEATURE:   "CREATING FREEDOM: THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH"
Directors: Raoul Martinez and Joshua van Praag

Our starting point in life is one of passive reliance on forces over which we have no control. From birth onwards our minds are a battleground of competing forces: familial, educational, cultural and professional. The outcome of this battle not only determines who we become, but the society we create.  

Imagine two enemy combatants on a battlefield. Suppose it were possible to go back in time and swap them at birth, so that each baby would be raised in the other culture. Is it not inevitable that each would end up fighting for the other side -- fighting for a different flag, a different religion, a different ideology?

The film uses this thought experiment as a starting point to explore the following questions: Do the forces that shape us serve the interests of those doing the shaping? If we're simply a product of biological and environmental influences, can we be free?
