ORDER HERE

Watch The Miracle Of Life at home, as you would have back in the day.

This old school tape edition is limited to 100 copies. Each handmade tape is umbilical-cord numbered.

As a bonus we throw in one of the g-strings worn by Marianne with each purchase. These panties are actual props from the movie, but feel free to let us know your size and we’ll see what we can do.

TAPES WILL NOW INCLUDE A LINK TO WATCH A DIGITAL TRANSFER OF THE TAPE ONLINE. This way you won’t have to invest in analog technology, but you still get that warm fuzzy sleazy VHS image, even on your smart-device. It’s the best of all worlds.

English (with English subtitles)
Mono sound
4:3 (2.40:1 letterboxed)

The Miracle Of Life DVD – 2 Disc Special Edition

dvd launch

 

ORDER HERE
The Special Edition was launched at FACTS  on october 18, 2014.

Several scenes that never made it into the movie for pacing reasons are now edited, graded and mixed to be shown for the first time ever on this dvd (on the bonus disc). Another extra is a short but crazy featurette that shows glimpses of what it feels like to build a living placenta in your kitchen. To top it all off there is an additional short film (or mixtape rather) of home recordings from the world of The Miracle Of Life. Bizarre tv-snippets, bootleg porn clips and Marianne and Luke’s family-movies offer an alternative account of the placenta growing up to be the person he becomes at the end of The Miracle.

FAQ

Q: When will the VHS be available?
A: At the time of writing (early feb 2014) part of the 100-tape stock has already been manufactured, with more on the way. We hope to ship out in time for valentine’s day, so that all you lovebirds out there waiting for the ultimate date movie will not be disappointed.

Q: Are you a professional/experienced retailer?
A: As you might have guessed: no. We’re filmmakers in the first place. Just like the film was created thanks to the energy, enthusiasm and unconditional patience of just a handful of people, this website and shop is a small-scale home based operation, relying on the self-taught skills and experiences of individuals. This means that, while we don’t have a fancy looking add-to-cart system with dozens of neat options, we are in fact very approachable and  together with you we’ll be trying to work out the best and cheapest way to get your items delivered to you.

Q: I’m placing an order from Belgium/The Netherlands,  but there are two shipping options. Which one should I choose?
A: If you choose the more expensive one (BPost), your order will be delivered at your door by regular mail. If you choose the cheaper one (Kiala), your order will be sent to a Kiala service point in your neighborhood (for more info check the Kiala Belgium or Kiala Netherlands), where you can pick it up. There’s even a third possibility; you can pick up your order directly from us in Ghent, which costs nothing extra (except of course your own travel expenses). In that case contact us before placing your order.

Q: The website and movie are completely in English. If I contact you, should I write in English?
A: We can communicate fluently in English, Dutch and German. French is possible too but it may take us a little longer to reply.

Q: I’d like to order larger quantities of an item than the shop-page allows. 
A: No problem. Best to contact us first through rabijns.sondermeier@gmail.com If you want to order a large(r) number of items for reselling, we can give you a small discount. Any way to give the film more exposure is very welcome.
