Is there anything cuter than a baby? Or more likely to make you smile? Now, just in time for Mother's Day, Focus Features is releasing a film that documents the first year of four babies in four different parts of the world. Here's a sneak peak at the little one from Namibia.

Ponijao lives in Namibia with her family, including her parents and eight older brothers and sisters. Ponijao’s family is part of the Himba tribe, and lives in a small village with other families, following traditions including speaking their own (Himba) language. The men in the Himba tribe are generally off looking after the cattle and searching for grass, so Ponijao is most often with her mother and other female relatives; she plays, eats, and is bathed through the traditional method of mixing concrete red ochre with oil. Ponijao’s favorite things to do are dance and play with other children in the tribe.

Over the next few weeks I'll have more information to share about the other kids that are part of BABIES! I hope you'll find it interesting and as captivating as I have.
