Shelby Hadden: Her & Me (short film on twins)


A documentary film about a set of identical twin sisters living identical lives.

Twins are two offspring produced by the same pregnancy.[1] Twins can be either monozygotic (“identical”), meaning that they develop from one zygote, which splits and forms two embryos, or dizygotic (“fraternal”), meaning that each twin develops from a separate egg and each egg is fertilized by its own sperm cell.[2]

In contrast, a fetus that develops alone in the womb is called a singleton, and the general term for one offspring of a multiple birth is multiple.[3] Non-related look-alikes whose resemblance parallels that of twins are referred to as doppelgangers.[4]
