About This Project

BUMP is a short film by filmmaker Arthur Le FOL and Mimbre, which challenges and deconstructs social expectations around people’s bodies during pregnancy.


Joint artistic director Silvia wanted to show how pregnancy and movement can happily coexist. BUMP celebrates pregnant people’s bodies, and dispels the myths that movement in pregnancy is always a danger for parent or baby.
