Seeds of Deceit Part 1 A promise

Seeds of Deceit Part 1 A promise
dir. Miriam Guttmann/The Netherlands/2021/45 min.

The first episode "A promise" tells the story of how Dr. Karbaat became the most renowned fertility doctor in the Netherlands. Former patients, mothers of “Karbaat” children, discuss their longstanding wish for a child, and how it made them close their eyes to an often-horrific and unbearable insemination treatment.

The revelation in 2017 that the late Dutch infertility specialist Dr. Karbaat clandestinely used his own semen to inseminate over 65 of his patients shocked the world. ”Seeds of Deceit” is a vivid portrayal of how that happened and how it haunts today those affected: the emotional trauma of coming to terms with a changed, uncertain genetic origin.
