Seeds of Deceit Part 2 Offspring

Seeds of Deceit
dir. Miriam Guttmann/The Netherlands/2021/45 min.

The second episode Offspring shows how the Karbaat children deal with the genetic and  emotional heritage once the news was out, debating and weighing the impact of nature and nurture. The children share their inner conflicts, on the one side feeling recognition and belonging, while on the other also fear of inheriting malicious genetic traits.

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.
