Woestijnvis, a Belgian production company, is looking for Canadian participants for a Belgian National Television documentary series.
The Birthday Twins Project involves about 20 Belgians and will address what life might be like had they been born on the same day but somewhere else in the world.
Annelore De Donder, editor of the Birthday Twins Project, would like to hear from rural Ontarians with matching birth dates and gender, who might want to participate in the project. Because Belgians are largely an urban culture, she says, they are very interested in finding birthday twins in rural Ontario. They hope to be able to visit the twins abroad, introduce them to their Belgian counterparts and discover their similarities and differences.
The Belgian men and women selected are born on these dates.
July 19 1948,
December 1, 1971
and May 3,1981.
and July 24,1982.
The people they are looking for are not randomly chosen, says De Donder. They hope to find twins who could offer an insight into a certain culture or country, a certain profession, a given habit, an evolution or trend, or historical fact. They are keen to find Canadian twins given the country's beautiful setting and think it would be interesting to be able to portray a Canadian citizen.
The company's philosophy, she says, is to make positive documentaries with a respectful approach to the people participating.
