2019 Media Award
Three Identical Strangers
The MADA MEDIA award is presented to an individual and/or newspaper, magazine, radio or television outlet that printed or aired a story in the previous year which created awareness of multiple-birth issues, individual chapters, or spotlighted MBC and/or chapter initiatives.
The 2019 Media MADA goes to the producers and directors of the true story, Three Identical Strangers.
The story is about three complete strangers who accidentally discover that they are identical triplets, separated at birth. The movie was released in 2018 with the production companies CNN films and Raw TV.
It was directed by Tim Wardle, produced by Becky Read, Grace Hughes-Hallett and stars the actual triplets: Edward Galland, David Kellman and Robert Shafran.
For three teenage boys living in New York in the 1980s, what starts as an uncanny resemblance quickly turns into an extraordinary stranger-than-fiction story. The discovery that Bobby, Eddy and David were triplets separated at birth and adopted by three different families catapults the former strangers to international fame. But their incredible reunion also unlocks a secret that gives this bizarre and charming tale a mysterious and troubling origin story.
Congratulations to the film makers on creating and sharing this incredible true tale.
