Documentary / Dutch

A twinned experience of private life and artistic persona.

Twin sisters Lisbeth and Angelique Raeven have been working together as the Dutch artistic duo L.A. Raeven for the past ten years, creating controversial films and performances that challenge traditional representations of feminine beauty, anorexia and sibling relationships. Lisa Boerstra’s candid documentary combines home movies and excerpts from films and performances with observational footage of the twins in their daily lives, capturing the tensions, interactions and remarkable psychological connections between them.
