In Utero, The Movie

In Utero, produced by the Institute’s director, Stephen Gyllenhaal, was released in 2016 and has attracted world-wide attention for its scientific, breakthrough portrayal of the profound impact of our development in the womb.

Today, In Utero, the film is part of the training at the Institute and is available to rent at the In Utero website. A study guide is also available.
