About me

Hello, I am Miri Urman, a Filmmaker, Director and Editor.IMG 8194

When I finished my Academic studies and while working as a Director

at Israel Educational TV, I started my own filmmaking on social topics,

especiallly about environment, homebirths and self  healing.

I believe that knowledge provides power to people, and I desire to promote freedom of choice for women in birth and for all people to find their right healing.

In this site you can find information about me, watch my films,

and if you are from Israel, you can also order a film screening along with a lecture.


Have a nice tour,

Birth Dialogue - A HomeBirth documentary film

Hormones, anxiety and lots of unknowns blend together as Miri and Amit are about to have their first child – away from the interfering elements of a traditional hospital birthing center.

This is a story about a couple living a non-traditional lifestyle, making uncommon choices from having a home birth to raising their child in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Tel Aviv.

Take an intimate journey with the parents-to-be as they document the months leading up to their home birth, as well as the delivery itself.
