An inspiring and enlightening film about motherhood,
First Comes Love shares director Nina Davenport’s
journey to become a mother, on her own, at the
age of 41. Following the birth of her niece she yearns
for a baby of her own, and documents her journey
into a new and non-traditional mode of parenthood.
Faced with challenges and hurdles along the way,
Davenport’s resilience and humility pull her through
complications and adversity as she experiences life
as a single mother in the bustling city of New York.
First Comes Love is a frank portrait of how the modern
family model is being re-imagined, but it’s Nina’s
humour and intimacy with the viewer that makes this
film so special. Robin Smith, Hot Docs
