Q&A with dr. Dirk Smit, Department of Biological Psychology, VU University Amsterdam. Heredity and identity is one of the subjects we will surely discuss.
In 2003 a Chinese twin was found in a wooden box. The identical twin sisters were adopted by families in Norway and the USA. Alexandra is raised in a small Norwegian village, Mia in Sacramento, California. When they are eight years old they meet in Norway. The sisters have an immediate, strong bond. And they share many typical behavioural traits. In the movie we see the meeting through their parents eyes. They, too, start asking questions about the heredity of complex human traits.
After the screening of the documentary Twin Sisters there is a Q&A with dr. Dirk Smit, Department of Biological Psychology, VU University, Amsterdam.
