by REERA YOO | @reeraboo

Feature documentary Twinsters, which tells the incredible true story of twin sisters reunited after 25 years of separation, will be making its world premiere at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival.

Born in Busan, South Korea, Samantha Futerman and Anaïs Bordier were separated at birth and raised by two different families on different continents. The sisters did not know about each other’s existence for 25 years until one day, Bordier stumbled upon a YouTube video of Futerman and was struck the uncanny resemblance. After discovering that they were both adoptees and shared the same birthday, Bordier sent Futerman a Facebook message, and their lives changed forever with just one click.
