“WITKIN AND WITKIN explores the worlds of identical twins, Joel-Peter, a world famous photographer and Jerome, a painter and lifelong educator. An intensely human film from award-winning documentalist Trisha Ziff (The Man Who Saw Too Much) that addresses the philosophy of their practices, their art and relationship, and how women have shaped their lives. A film about perception and growing older, two artists working in different media who shared a childhood but whose lives took very different directions.
