Three Identical Strangers

UK International Jewish Film Festival

UK Premiere and Centrepiece Gala
Followed by a Q&A with Tim Wardle

Raised by their respective adoptive families within a hundred-mile radius of each other, triplet siblings Robert Shafran, Eddy Galland and David Kellman were oblivious to the fact each had two identical brothers until a chance meeting brought them together, aged 19, for the first time since birth. Their astounding story, which became a worldwide sensation in the early 1980s, catapulted them to fame with the trio landing a cameo in Desperately Seeking Susan and becoming a fixture in Studio 54. But even more incredible was the reason, unknown to them at first, that led to their separation in the first place. This astonishing, stranger-than-fiction documentary masterfully tells a story whose sanguine elements could not mitigate the gross injustice at its core.
