The Smuggled Sperm

Doc / Post Production Platform


Since 2012, 64 children have been the off springs of artificial insemination through their jailed father’s smuggled sperm. For the last six years, the idea of smuggling sperm has brought life literally, back to the wives and families of prisoners jailed for 25 plus years inside Israeli prisons.
When Palestinians are sentenced to prison, their wives also pay the price. This is because a wife of a prisoner is expected to remain faithful by her husband’s side, leaving her waiting and lonely for dozens of years. This is what inspired prisoner Ammar al Zuban in 2012 to come up with the idea of smuggling his sperm after being sentenced to 27 years in prison.
