MASHA AND DASHA: TWO HEARTS IN ONE [2019] NIFF

A documentary film by Festival Director, Diana Taylor, and the book The Less You Know The Sounder You Sleep with the author, Juliet Butler.

 Juliet Butler qualified with a degree in Russian at Exeter University and, in 1982, became a journalist in Moscow where she met the world’s most extreme Siamese twins, Masha and Dasha Krivoshlyapov. Juliet discovered that the twins had been used for human experiments by the Russian physiologist Professor Anokhin and institutionalised all their lives. She tells the incredible story of the twins who were hidden away from society for 50 years.
