Movie Info

Witkin & Witkin explores the worlds of identical twins, Joel-Peter, world famous photographer and Jerome, painter and life long educator. An intensely human film that addresses the philosophy of their practices, their art and personal relationship. We meet the women in their lives who gives us access to their worlds, beyond their images. A film about perception and growing older, two artists working in different media who shared a childhood but whose lives took very different directions. We spend time with them in their studios, in both Syracuse and Albuqueque worlds and realities that couldn't be less alike. Filmed over 4 years Witkin and Witkin documents the changes they experience as time tells its own distinct and disparate narrative.

Each unorthodox and unique in his own inimitable way, the Witkins make for compelling viewing in this bold, intimate portrait of their relationship.

Their individual processes and influences is great fodder for art enthusiasts, but the brothers' peculiar and purposeful life-long estrangement is what gives the doc a through line.

... documentary filmmaker Trisha Ziff seems more inclined towords the curatorial approach, placing particular emphasis on works, how they are produced and their influences... [Full review in Spanish]
