Netflix has released a trailer for the fascinating, but dark and heartbreaking documentary film ‘Tell Me Who I Am’, which premieres at London Film Festival today, and on Netflix worldwide Friday, 18th October 2019.

When 18-year-old Alex Lewis wakes up from a coma after surviving a motorcycle accident, the world is not one he remembers. He has forgotten everything. His home. His parents. He can’t even remember his own name. The only thing he does know is that the person sitting next to him is his identical twin brother, Marcus. Alex relies on Marcus to give him his memory back; to tell him who he is. But the idyllic childhood Marcus paints for his twin conceals a traumatic family secret.

Now, after decades of hiding the painful realities of their past, Alex and Marcus go on an extraordinary journey together to face the truth and finally discover who Alex really is. ‘Tell Me Who I Am’ is a heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful voyage that explores the blurred boundaries of memory and reality, and the emotional bonds that allow us to survive.

In ‘Tell Me Who I Am’, Academy Award-nominated director Ed Perkins (‘Black Sheep’, ‘Garnet’s Gold’) gives the Lewis twins space to tell their story their way, as they painfully explain why they needed to share this with the world. Produced by co-Founder of Lightbox and two-time Academy Award-winner Simon Chinn (‘Man on Wire’, ‘Searching for Sugar Man’), this extraordinary film unravels a compelling narrative of secrets and lies and asks the most difficult questions in search of the truth.

‘Tell Me Who I Am’ premieres at London Film Festival today, and on Netflix worldwide Friday, 18th October 2019.
