1920s Surrealist artists Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore come to life in this hybrid documentary. Lesbians and step-sisters, the gender-bending artists lived and worked together all their lives. Heroic resisters to the Nazis occupying Jersey during the Second World War, they were captured and sentenced to death.

Award-winning filmmaker Barbara Hammer infuses this film with vigour using photographs, archival footage, dramatic interludes of a “found Cahun script”, and unique interviews of Jersey residents who knew the “sisters”.
