43rd International Film Festival of India

India as an emerging market for surrogate mothers, is now the theme of an upcoming Polish film.

Two Polish filmmakers, who are in Goa for the 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI), told IANS that they were on the lookout for a joint India Polish production for a movie about surrogacy and the laws of the land, which sometimes makes it trying for parents of children born through the practice.

Surrogacy involves roping in of a surrogate mother, who literally rents her womb for child bearing.

"We are planning to shoot our film 'Re: Poland' sometime in 2013," said Roman Jedrkowiak, project manager and producer of the film.

Jedrkowiak said that the film revolved around a childless Polish couple, who travel to India to have a baby through surrogacy. They get their child, but it is when they need to travel back with the baby that the laws of both countries make it an excruciating experience for them.

"Their trials start after they have the baby. The film explores the subject of surrogacy, in juxtaposition with the seemingly inadequate laws which are in place," Wojciech Lepianka, the film's scriptwriter, said.

India is said to be one of the most sought after countries in the world, where childless parents as well as gay couples come relatively cheaper surrogacy procedures.

Recent studies reveal that a regular surrogacy programme costs $15,000, which is around a fifth of the cost in the US.

"What we are looking out for in India is a local partnership. There is a significant portion of the film which needs to be shot in this country. We are scouting around," said Jedrkowiak.
