Jury Citation for ‘Can we see the baby bump please?’

Special Mention: CAN WE SEE THE BABY BUMP PLEASE? at the 2013 Jeevika: Asia Livelihood Documentary festival held in Delhi 
Director: Surabhi Sharma

‘Can we see the Baby Bump please’ is an even-handed film about a contentious issue. While raising questions regarding regulation and explanation, it sets the larger socio-economic context in which women choose to play the alienating role of surrogate mother. We commend it for its quiet, careful exploration of a complex issue.
