Demonstration with Three Identical Strangers, translated into French by Three identical strangers. This 1h37 documentary from Great Britain and which tells an American story dates from 2018. It was not until three years later, thanks to Netflix therefore, that it took off all over the world. This documentary by Tim Wardle centers its action on Edward Galland, David Kellman and Robert Shafran. A priori, no link between these three men.
