Film Project Needs People


By Staff Reporter


The ‘Birthday Twins Project’ is looking for individuals worldwide born on specific dates as part of a documentary the project is filming for Belgian Television.

It has already found individuals in several countries including Nicaragua, Chile, Brazil, the UK, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, Morocco, Mali, Cameroon, South Africa, Tanzania, the Faroe Islands, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Singapore, China, Japan, Canada and the USA who want to participate in the documentary.

Editor of the ‘Birthday Twins Project’ Annelore de Donder said the project was keen on finding Namibian individuals as well in its quest to obtain the largest panel of people possible in terms of diversity of nationalities, ethnicities, social backgrounds, professions and faith.

“The idea behind this documentary is to film lives in parallel of people who have nothing in common but their date of birth,” she said, adding that this could be seen as an attempt to answer the question: “What would my life be if I was born in another part of the world?”

In the event that Namibians respond positively, the ‘Birthday Twins Project’ would travel to the country to interview and shoot for the documentary. They would also bring in the relevant people to provide comparisons.

In this regard, the project is looking for Namibian men and women born on the following dates:

29 April 1933
