‘Twinsters’ to Hit Theaters Nationwide July 17

by REERA YOO | @reeraboo

Twinsters, a documentary about twin sisters reunited through social media after 25 years of separation, is slated for a July theatrical release, Variety reports.

In 2013, Anaïs Bordier, a French fashion design student living in London, saw Los Angeles-based actress Samantha Futerman featured in a YouTube video and was struck by their striking resemblance. After learning that they were born in Busan, South Korea on the same day and both adopted by families overseas, Bordier sent Futerman a Facebook message. Soon, the two women began exchanging childhood photos and bonding over Skype. Their reunion and trip to their birth country were documented in a feature-length documentary, which was funded through two Kickstarter campaigns.

Directed by Futerman and Ryan Miyamoto, Twinsters premiered at the 2015 South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival, where it won the Jury Award for editing and was a Grand Jury nominee.

Indie film studio Ignite Channel announced on Monday that Twinsters will open at AMC Empire in New York on July 17, followed by a screening at Los Angeles’ ArcLight Hollywood theater on July 24. The film will also be screened in 41 more U.S. cities starting July 31 and will remain in theaters for at least one week.
