This week, a new documentary has been released in the United States telling the untold stories of children of sperm donors. Anonymous Father's Day is produced by The Center for Bioethics and Culture
and follows of from the award-winning Eggsploitation (2010) film.
Featuring the heart-rending reflections of now adult children fathered anonymously, these donor-conceived children share the pain, longing and uncertainties created by the secrecy of their conceptions. Each has a real, biological father kept secret from them by an industry fixated on profits and product. It is an industry unconcerned for the emotional, medical and physical needs of the children whose conception it sells through the resale of sperm acquired from anonymous men.Anonymous Father's Day
What is it like to grow up not knowing who your father is or who your siblings are? What is it like to find out that the man who is your biological father, who you most fundamentally resemble, is knowable only as a catalogue "sperm" number? How does it impact your self-perception, the choices you make, and your view of life and the world? Donor-conceived people are demanding answers to these basic questions about their origins, their lives, and their identities.
Anonymous Father's Day is available today in DVD at www.anonymousfathersday.com/purchase/
