In 1980 three 19-year-old American men called Bobby Shafran, Eddy Galland and David Kellman discovered – by sheer coincidence – that they were identical triplets. The story went around the world, and there were several attempts to turn it into a movie, but things didn’t fall into place before British documentarian Tim Wardle came into the picture. With the astonishing THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS, Wardle tells a baffling story about a single mother, a scientific experiment and three involuntary and unknowing guinea pigs. Truth is seldom this much stranger than fiction.
THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS is in our main competition programme for international documentaries, Documentaire Extraordinaire.
