About the film:
World Premiere in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Feeling isolated from an unwelcoming community, June and Jennifer Gibbons turn inward and reject communication with everyone but each other, retreating into their own fantasy world of artistic inspiration and adolescent desires.
Silence was their bond. Imagination set them free. Based on an astounding true story of twin sisters who grew up in Wales.
