Unique voices multiply and individuals become communal in this program centered around Candice Breitz’s captivating split-screen video Factum Tremblay. Breitz filmed extensive interviews with a set of identical twins and dazzlingly edited the footage together into dual monologues that accentuate and complicate the differences and similarities between them. Love, individuality, sibling rivalries, and queerness are among the many topics that the irresistibly charming Tremblay siblings address. The program concludes with the inspiring Somos +, which follows a political demonstration by Chilean women who rise up with a unified voice against Augusto Pinochet’s military regime.
