DIRECTED BY Thomas Balmès

French documentarian (and father of three) Thomas Balmès captured everything from the first gasp of air to the first triumphant steps of four babies from vastly different cultures around the world. There is no denying the awww factor of his subjects, who hail from Namibia, Mongolia, Japan, and the U.S. (San Francisco, to be exact).
