Focus Features has released the trailer for Thomas Balmes‘ documentary Babies online. Based on an original idea by Alain Chabat, Babies simultaneously follows four babies around the world - from birth to first steps.

The children are, respectively, in order of on-screen introduction: Ponijao, who lives with her family near Opuwo, Namibia; Bayarjargal, who resides with his family in Mongolia, near Bayanchandmani; Mari, who lives with her family in Tokyo, Japan; and Hattie, who resides with her family in the United States, in San Francisco. Re-defining the nonfiction art form, Babies joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

The trailer is just too cute.  I guarantee the trailer will put a smile on your face.


Babies is directed by Thomas Balmès from an original idea by producer Alain Chaba. The cast includes Ponijao, Bayar, Mari and Hatte.
