TV PREMIERE on 2021/11/21 at 11:11 p.m. on ORF 2

Fall is here, and there's a lot to celebrate! We've already popped the corks and let the champagne flow. Not only because berg hammer film celebrates its 3rd birthday. We also celebrate the launch of our web shop and, above all, the TV premiere of our documentary film about the body fluids breast milk, blood and semen.

NATURAL JUICES - Bodily Fluids sold as Goods flows on sunday 21.11.2021 at 11:11 p.m. on ORF 2 across the screens for the first time and will then be available on the TVthek for seven days. 

There is no artificial substitute for breast milk, blood and sperm. The three substances can only be obtained from human bodies. They are collected and processed in banks and ultimately end up in other bodies. Karin Berghammer's documentary NATURAL JUICES explores the question of who donates the valuable secretions and who receives them at what price?
The spectrum ranges from a now 17-year-old premature baby, for whose survival breast milk was essential, to a patient for whose medication at least 600 people have to donate plasma every year, to a fertility patient from 1980 who, together with her daughter, suspects that someone else "donated" the sperm and earned money from it.
