“If all men got pregnant, it’d be taken so much more seriously” – behind the scenes of Seahorse

New documentary Seahorse tells the story of Freddy McConnell, whose desire to start his own family was filmed from start to finish, including birth. In this exclusive video for the Guardian, Freddy and director Jeanie Finlay discuss the collaborative process behind the scenes of the film, and the complex nuances and challenges of portraying an emotional and unpredictable process.
