I love documentaries, both films & series. Nature ones fascinate me, history ones astound me & ones about people just really
I love how a documentary can give you all the information about one thing in a normally unbiased way – by the end of it you know so much about a topic you may not have even been interested in beforehand.
I’m so interested in people & stories about them, so it’s no surprise that my favourite documentary is:
I cannot remember how I found out about this documentary, but I do know that I as soon as I did I had to hunt it down & watch it (luckily it was added to Netflix almost immediately after its release so I didn’t have to hunt hard).
Each was adopted separately as a child without each set of adoptive parents knowing they even had siblings.
It wasn’t until Sam – an actress, featured in a short film that circulated online was seen by Anaïs’s friends in 2013 that they discovered each other.
The documentary was started by Sam, completed by both her & Anaïs & follows the whole crazy journey of them finding each other, meeting each other & trying to figure out what happened to make them separated all in real time.
It’s so creatively & passionately put together – vlogging is merged with professionally recorded footage, live chats of text conversations & even animation. Every bit feels as exciting & as terrifying as it did to everyone involved.
It’s a really amazing story, really amazingly put together. I highly recommend you watch it.
