[5 mins. 10 secs.] Tim Wardle is the director of the award-winning documentary "Three Identical Strangers". Three strangers are reunited by astonishing coincidence after being born identical triplets, separated at birth, and adopted by three different families. Their jaw-dropping, feel-good story instantly becomes a global sensation complete with fame and celebrity, however, the fairy-tale reunion sets in motion a series of events that unearth an unimaginable secret –– a secret with radical repercussions for us all. This conversation took place at the offices of NEON, the theatrical distributor, in New York City. "Three Identical Strangers" had its American premiere at Sundance last year where it picked up the Special Jury Prize and is currently available on iTunes, Amazon and other digital platforms as well as on Blu-ray. The film will have its cable broadcast premiere on January 27th, 9PM Eastern on CNN.
