Kukho umboniso obalulekileyo kwifilimu entsha kaThomas Balmès ethi Babies, apho intsana enamehlo aluhlaza, enezidlele ezipinki egama linguHattie ibetha umama wayo ebusweni. Ngoko nangoko umama, uSusie Wise wase-Oakland, ukhupha incwadi yabantwana enesihloko esithi Akukho Ukubethisa kwishelufu kaHattie kwaye ayinike intombi yakhe.



Oko kusenokungavakali njenge-cinema ehlekisayo, kodwa xa kudityaniswa namaxesha obomi beentsana ezivela kwiindawo ezahlukeneyo zehlabathi, umphumo uba nomtsalane. Iintsana, evula uLwesihlanu, zilandela ezine kuzo — iPonijao, kwilali yaseNamibia; iMari yaseTokyo, eJapan; uBayar, waseMongolia ekwanti; kunye noHattie - ukususela ekuzalweni ukuya kumanyathelo abo okuqala.

UBalmès, umenzi wefilimu waseFransi owaphumelela iimbasa ngo-2000 ethi The Gospel According to the Papuans, ubalisa ngeendlela ezikhethekileyo neziqhelekileyo abantwana abajonga ngazo kwaye banxibelelane nehlabathi labo. Isigqibo sabenzi befilimu sokungasebenzisi incoko yababini okanye ukubalisa sivumela ababukeli ukuba bazenzele ezabo izigqibo.





Ophumayo nongenamzantsi, uPonijao, osapho lwakhe luphuma kwisizwe samaHima, uchitha ixesha lakhe elininzi edlala emhlabeni nabantwana bakowabo abasibhozo. U-Bayar, ohlala kwi-yurt kunye nentsapho yakhe yabelusi, yinkwenkwe ezolileyo ebala iinkomo phakathi kwabadlali bayo.

Kuyaqikelelwa, kukho ukufana phakathi kobomi basezidolophini, obukhawulezayo baseMari noHattie, bobabini bafotwe kwindawo yokuhlala enesitayile.



Kuthathe iminyaka emibini kunye neeyure ezingama-400 zemifanekiso ukwenza iintsana. Ezinye zezona zithonga zibuhlungu zefilimu - kubandakanywa nomzuzu we-No Hitting - ezifunekayo iiveki ukufumana.

Ndiyayithanda leya, utshilo uBalmès, kumnxeba ovela eNew York. Yinyani. UHattie ukhulela kusapho olufana nolwam, apho abantu bafunda iincwadi kwaye bezama ukufunda ezincwadini ukuba zeziphi iindlela ezilungileyo zokukhulisa umntwana. Naxa eqhwaba umama wakhe, kukho incwadi kanye apho. Awukwazi ukuyenza loo nto.



Lo mboniso wokubetha wamenza iintloni u-Wise, utsho. Umyeni wakhe, uFrazer Bradshaw, umzobi wemiboniso bhanyabhanya kule filimu, weva ngale projekthi kumntu asebenza naye, owathi uBalmès wayefuna abantu abasebenza kwiikhamera, kunye neentsana ezazalwa ngo-Epreli okanye ngoMeyi ka-2006.

Esi sibini sasifuna ukuthatha inxaxheba kuba iprojekthi idityaniswe nokwenziwa kwefilimu okuqwalaselweyo kunye noqwalaselo lwabazali, utshilo u-Wise. Ngamanye amaxesha babesicela ukuba siyeke kwaye simnike (uHattie) indawo ethile, kuba sisebenzisana kakuhle naye, u-Wise ukhumbula, ebhekisela kubasebenzi befilimu baseFransi ababendwendwela inyanga nenyanga kwaye bahlala iiveki ezimbalwa ngexesha.



Bekunye noMama noTata ecaleni, bafota uHattie kangangeyure yonke ngosuku, besenza izinto eziqhelekileyo zosana lwaseNtshona — bejikeleza ngediaper, besitya ibhanana, bedlala ngeselfowuni kaMama, njl njl. Emva kokubukela ifilimu egqityiweyo, UBulumko waba buhlungu kancinane ukuba ubomi babo basedolophini obugqithisileyo abuvumeli uHattie ukuba abe nonxibelelwano olungakumbi kunye nokusingqongileyo, njengoko uBayar noPonijao benza.

Ndinqwenela ukuba bendineehektare ezimbalwa ukuze uHattie achithe imini yakhe entsimini ejonga izinto, utsho uWise, osebenzela iHasso Plattner Institute of Design kwiYunivesithi yaseStanford.



Sizama ukumnika inkululeko yokufumanisa izinto kwaye abonakalise ukuzimela kwakhe, kodwa sinemiqobo emininzi.

UHattie, ngoku oneminyaka emi-4, akakhumbuli esenzelwa abantwana. Kodwa uyayithanda itreyila, kwaye wayibukela izihlandlo ezili-12 ngokulandelelana, ngokutsho kukatata wakhe.

Wayeyithanda kakhulu imeko xa ibhokhwe yentsapho yaseMongolia isela kwi-tub ye-Bayar. Kwaye nangona evuma umntwana uHattie kwisikrini, akaqondi ukuba umntwana wayengumncinane wakhe.

UBradshaw, othumele i-imeyile yakhe kubasebenzi baseFransi, uthi eyona nto inkulu ayifundileyo kulo mboniso bhanyabhanya kukuba kukho iindlela ezahlukeneyo zokukhulisa umntwana.

Ukuba uyenza ngendlela enye endaweni kwenye, akufani nokuba awugqibi nomntu omdala ngenye imini, utsho.

Ngokomzekelo, cinga ngendlela abantwana ababehlanjwa ngayo. Ngenxa yokuba amanzi enqabile kwaye izifo zamehlo zixhaphakile, ezibangelwa luthuli, umama waseNamibia wakhotha amehlo entombi yakhe esebenzisa umxube owenziwe ngeoli kunye ne-ocher ebomvu, iminerali. Umama kaBayer wahlamba ubuso bakhe ngobisi lwakhe lwebele.

Ukwenziwa komboniso bhanyabhanya kube nefuthe elikhulu kuBalmès, utata wabantwana abathathu, watshintsha iimbono zakhe ngokukhuliswa kwabantwana.

Kukho umsantsa kwiinkolelo zethu kunye nehlabathi lonke - ukuba kufuneka sizalise yonke imzuzu (yexesha lomntwana) ngomsebenzi kunye nokuvuselela, umenzi wefilimu uthi. Ngokukodwa nentombi yakhe yokuqala, uBalmès uthi, wayehlala emfundela, ecula iingoma okanye emkhwelisa ukuya kwisifundo sokudanisa.

Ndaqaphela kunye nezinye iintsana ukuba, ukusebenza kunye nabo kunye nendawo yabo, ukujonga isibhakabhaka okanye ikati, kubavumela ukuba bakhulise ubudlelwane nehlabathi, uthi.

Nangona kunjalo, abazali bahlala beneenjongo ezilungileyo xa bekhulisa abantwana babo, kwaye uBalmès wayefuna ukuyizekelisa loo nto. Yiyo loo nto ekhethe iintsapho ezazithi, phakathi kweendawo zazo, zigqalwe zonwabile kwaye zikwazi ukunika abantwana babo okona kulungileyo, utshilo. Ekugqibeleni, wayefuna ukwenza abaphulaphuli befilimu baqhwabele izandla xa umntwana - naluphi na usana - ekugqibeleni wema ngeenyawo zakhe.

Endleleni, wafunda ukuba abantu baseMelika bayaphambana. Akunjalo ngendlela umntu ancuma ngayo xa umntwana omhle engena egumbini, kodwa ngendlela eyehlayo-into-oyenzayo-nokuqala-ukubhibhidla ngendlela egcwele uluntu lwethu kunabanye, ngokukaBalmès. Kutyelelo lwakhe lokugqibela eUnited States, lo menzi wefilimu wayekwilifti yehotele yaseSan Francisco xa kwangena umama nosana lwakhe.

Abafazi abahlanu kwilifti bayeka into abayenzayo kwaye bonke babhekisa ingqalelo kumntwana, utshilo uBalmès. Ngokwenkcubeko, le yinto eyodwa.
