Baby God (2020)Watch full documentary
HBO’s brand-new documentary film, Baby God, will have you glued to the screen.
It’s a haunting examination into the work of infamous Nevada fertility specialist Dr Quincy Fortier, a man who deceived countless women struggling to conceive by using his own sperm — without their knowledge or consent — to impregnate them.
Recalling a time before sperm banks, when little was understood about DNA, the film follows several of his biological children as they grapple with new information about their origins and their own identities, examining the morality of one doctor who used science and status to exploit innumerable women — and further his own genetic legacy — over nearly half a century.
Baby God is directed and produced by Hannah Olson (Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and the upcoming Diamond Princess documentary).
