Twins Days is a festival for biological twins that has taken place every summer since 1976, in Twinsburg, Ohio. It’s the largest annual gathering of twins in the world. In this film, twins discuss what it’s like to have an identical other half, and the joy of being surrounded by thousands of other twins, if only for a few days.

Twins Days Festival, 2015
This film is a collection of audiovisual moments and memories of a 3-week railway journey through Japan in 2015. We were whizzing through the country with the Shinkansen visiting Tokyo, Osaka, Hiroshima and Kyoto as well as lots of wonderful little places along the way, meeting the most friendly people and experiencing a culture that somehow balances its rich tradition with a very futuristic present.
