Synopsis_

"A portrait documentary about the famous brothers Joel-Peter Witkin (a photographer) and Jerome Witkin a painter".

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. A film about perception and growing older, two artists working in different media who shared a childhood but whose lives took very different directions. Filmed over 4 years Witkin & Witkin documents the changes they experience as time tells its own distinct and disparate narrative.
