The Twinning Reaction examines the human costs of an infamous research project: the 1960s Neubauer-Bernard study of separated twins. In the nature v. nurture study, twins were separated in infancy by an adoption agency, then tested for multiple years by psychiatrists from a New York research facility. Shockingly, the adoptive parents of these twins were never told their baby had an “other” living in the same metropolitan area -- some just a few miles away. Lori Shinseki’s documentary tells the story of four sets of identical twins and triplets whose lives were deeply affected by the secret separations and deception.

This wildly entertaining documentary by filmmaker Stevie Doueck, takes us for a ride down memory lane with a group of summer vacationers along the Jersey Shore in the quaint town of Bradley Beach New Jersey during the 40’s, 50’s & 60’s


Having settled during the summer months from the thirties through the seventies, this group managed to stay life-long friends for over a sixty-year period. Their friendship has stood the test of time, as they share in this documentary all those happy-go-lucky moments together, triggered by the simple acts they shared as a group. The ultimate question asked is: could those wonderful fun years be re-captured, and could their children, and grandchildren continue the tradition they experienced?
