Synopsis: Fragments of songs and conversation echo through the polished halls and quiet pathways of a residential school for the blind. Here, the textured inner lives and idiosyncratic humor of identical twin brothers contrast with the manicured desolation of the campus.

Director's Statement

Les Deux is a glimpse of the close, idiosyncratic relationship of twin brothers, Jonah and Jamie Leduc living at a residential school for the blind. Before we directed Les Deux, we each worked for years programming a film festival focused on disabilities, watching thousands of films that emphasized “message” over both aesthetics and story. We were struck by the fact that such films, paradoxically, provided little opportunity for true engagement or real connection. We sought to make this film as a rejection of such simplistic portrayals of people with disabilities, which often reduce their experience to “just like us” or to elevate their experience as “heroes overcoming obstacles.” Instead, with Les Deux, we are invited, however briefly, into a world and experience that is as unique to Jonah and Jamie as their raps and inside jokes.
