How sterile men become fathers

A documentary by Reinhild Dettmer-Finke and Claudia Déja

2002, 45 Min., SWR

For 4 years, Jörg and Steffi Brumann have tried to have a child but in vain. And now the devastating diagnosis. He is sterile! A shock and a blow to the ego, especially when it has to do with the man. Often sterility is still wrongly confused with impotence. The film looks over the shoulder of leading andrologists and accompanies couples through the highs and lows of fertility treatment. A close-up on male emotions.
