Broadcast Premiere: "Twin Life: Sharing Mind and Body" On CBC Television's Doc Zone

March 10, 2014

Broadcast Premiere:
Twin Life - Tatiana & Krista Hogan at Science World

VANCOUVER, BC (RPRN) 03/10/14 — Documentary from Entertainment One Television Airs

Thursday March 13th at 7 PM (7:30 NT)

Leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne) is proud to announce the hour-long documentary TWIN LIFE: SHARING MIND AND BODY will debut on CBC Television’s Doc Zone on Thursday March 13th at 7PM (7:30 NT).

Twin Life: Sharing Mind and Body captures a year in the life of 7 year old conjoined twins Tatiana and Krista Hogan. Joined at the head, they were given only a 20% chance of survival at birth, but these girls continue to defy the odds, confound doctors and move beyond developmental milestones once thought impossible.

The documentary unravels the mystery of Tatiana and Krista’s astonishing brain connection. They are the only known twins in the world who can see what the other sees and feel what the other feels.  Their family also believes they share the sense of taste, and can even send thoughts back and forth.   That’s because of a neural bridge between each girl’s thalamus – a part of the brain that regulates consciousness and relays sensory and motor signals.  An MRI test suggests the twins can sense, and perhaps even control one another’s limbs.

Twin Life: Sharing Mind and Body follows major events in the twins’ lives, including the beginning of grade two, Halloween, their seventh birthday party and a medical trip to Vancouver.  Because of their conjoined state, the girls face myriad health problems – including epilepsy and heart concerns.

As our cameras follow daily life at home, we see how the large extended Hogan family takes all the challenges in stride, determined to give the twins as normal a life as possible. And we watch as two rambunctious little girls overcome the obstacles, thanks to a loving family who regard them as a blessing.

“These little girls are just so happy, loving and sweet,” said producer/director Judith Pyke.  “They handle their circumstance and every day with such sparkle.”

Produced by Judith Pyke and Margaret O’Brien, Twin Life: Sharing Mind and Body is written and directed by Judith Pyke. Executive Producers include eOne’s Loren Mawhinney and Margaret O’Brien.  eOne handles the distribution for the documentary worldwide in all media.
