The movie, Babies, is a video documentary showcasing different cultures around the world, in different countries like America, Japan, Mongolia, and East Africa. The four babies had very different ways of living, the Mongolian and East African babies both lived in more of a rural setting, as opposed to the Japanese and American babies, who lived in more of an urban setting. As displayed in the film, our American culture is extremely different from other cultures from around the globe. First thing I noticed about East Africa was the style of clothing or lack thereof. In East Africa, the people are all often topless and the females covered their chest in some form of homemade red paste and the babies had their head covered in the same paste. Also, the hygiene in rural places are very different as well, the women licked their children clean like cats. They would lick the dirt off their body, then spit out the dirt. That was one of the most strangest things I ever seen. The most similar cultures was American and Japanese.They were both modern style of living and parenting. After watching, this movie, I realized my culture by seeing things done differently.
