Synopsis

Twins look at each other and ask themselves who they are. Two pairs of girls, seven and thirteen years old, try to differentiate between themselves or become one. Do I think I’m pretty or that she is? While eating and at school, dancing and dreaming: Harmony and individuality become visible. And then there’s the question of who’s the person in the family photos: “And that’s me.”

I AM ME is a film essay which examines the theme of identity, using two pairs of identical twins as an example. A search among personal experience and everyday life: Who am I and what does this “I” mean, a thing which is so valuable but can present such insurmountable obstacles? What do I as a member of the audience make of the other individuals on the screen? What makes us different, what do we have in common?
