Welcome Home : A family story

2015 | Documentary | Drama | 72 min | Color


Mario and Sergio decided to have a son. Welcome home is a film that allows us to accompany them through this new stage in their lives: since they first realize they want to be parents, until they finally get a surrogate. This process will entail a trip, from Barcelona to L.A, where they find the surrogate, Edith, a young latin woman who will give birth to their son, Galileo. Through this peculiar pregnancy, Sergio and Mario will stay strong, share expectations with the people they love, and realize what really means to be a parent.

At Inicia Films we understand that production is a way to influence society and connect emotionally with the audience. Since 2006 we have been working to promote new generations of filmmakers and thus give them a voice in today’s audiovisual world.

Through the eyes of our creators, the sensitivity of our authors, we accompany the development of international projects and multicultural talent, building bridges between their experiences abroad and their roots. We deal with topics that respond to current concerns and we believe that by connecting people and emotions we can help draw new narrative and visual horizons.
