TWIN SISTERS: A Documentary Airing on PBS October 20th

On Monday, October 20th, the documentary Twin Sisters will air on the PBS series Independent Lens. The story follows two families who adopt two baby girls from China. By chance the families, one from Norway and one from America, meet each other and notice how similar their daughters look. Although the Chinese authorities assure them the girls are not related, the families switch phone numbers to stay in touch. A year later, they agree to DNA testing and discover their girls are twins.

The film examines our notions of family, the ones we inherit and the ones we create.
