The Twinning Reaction is a feature-length documentary film about a tragically failed human research experiment from the 1960s: a case involving identical twins who were separated in infancy and secretly studied by psychiatrists. for many years (also covered from a different angle in 2018's THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS). The film provides an inside look at the dangers of medical arrogance and the enduring bonds of twinship. Some of these twins and triplets have reunited by sheer luck, others through the filmmaker’s years of research on this story.
