Film of the month November 2016: The New Man

Our film of the month for November 2016 is The New Man, directed by Devorah Baum and Josh Appignanesi. Hailed as “moving, insightful and beautifully crafted” by Time Out and “very funny and poignant” by The Guardian, it’s a must-see documentary for anyone who has children, is thinking of having them, or still feels like a child themselves…

A married couple (Appignanesi and Baum) turn the camera on themselves as they undergo the sometimes hilarious ordeal of becoming parents in our era of IVF, late reproduction and the crisis of masculinity. But when life-threatening complications hit, they’re tested to the brink. What emerges is an intimate, moving portrait of a generation going through a revolution that no one is talking about. En route we encounter the likes of Zadie Smith, John Berger, Antony Gormley, Slavoj Žižek, Hisham Matar, Darian Leader and David Schneider.
