  • Twin
    "Television through a glass darkly," is how Dean Santomieri's Twin, has been described. Television reaching out to the so-called real world and the real world weaving itself back into the fabric of fiction. Our narrator finds himself acting as the "screen" in a vicarious projection of David Lynch's Twin Peaks. Once in the real world this twinning exhibits the properties of a living thing and spreads its influence into the world with disturbing consequences. 1991.
    Screened locally (ATA, Roxie, Red Vic) and in festivals around the world, 1991-1993.
