“What's the difference between the original and a copy?”, Belina Zavadisca asks herself in this film that combines a portrait of the Orellana twins and the replicas made during their time as mayors.

Panorama / Places
Premier mundial

The city of Famaillá has an obsession with replicas that finds a sort of social and scientific correspondence: you can hardly differentiate causes from consequences in the fact that the city has an unusual amount of twins. The Orellana brothers –whom Zavadisca follows for most of this documentary– are the definitive example of this, as they toggled between them the office of city mayor for over two decades. If the connection between an original and its replica is always charged with a kind of tension –which always includes a subordination– then the question here is whether that connection can be transported to the one that exists between two physically identical people, and to what extent normal identity is possible within twin siblings. Is one of the Orellana twins the original, and the other one a double? RA
