Witkin & Witkin

Dir. Trisha Ziff

Witkin & Witkin | 2017 | Mexico-USA | 86 min.


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.
