"The Power of Two," a feature documentary on twin sisters with cystic fibrosis, has been selected for a prestigious Oscar-qualifying documentary showcase and has captured the attention of Hollywood at Los Angeles screenings this week.

The powerful movie illustrates the intimate bond between Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, half-Japanese twin sisters who have survived double-lung transplants and emerged as authors, athletes and advocates for organ donation and those living with CF in the United States and Japan.

"The Power of Two" has been selected for DocuWeeks, the Oscar-qualifying documentary showcase presented by the International Documentary Association. Following a week-long run in Los Angeles (August 19-25), the film will screen 14 times during the week of August 26-September 1 at the IFC Center in New York.

“The Power Of Two” is the feature directorial debut from Academy Award nominated filmmaker Marc Smolowitz ("The Weather Underground" and "Trembling Before G-d") and was produced by Twin Triumph Productions.
