Tell Me Who I Am is a 2019 documentary film directed and produced by the British filmmaker Ed Perkins. It focuses on twin brothers Alex and Marcus Lewis. Alex lost his memory in a motorcycle accident at age 18, and his twin brother helped him recreate his lost memories of his childhood. However, Marcus omits that the twins were sexually abused by their mother and also sexually abused by friends of hers in a child abuse network until the age of 14. The film follows Alex and Marcus in telling their lives' stories from the accident at age 18 to age 32, when the sexual abuse is revealed after their mother's death, to both of them coming to terms with the abuse at age 54. The documentary is based on a 2013 book written by the twins together with Joanna Hodgkin.
After their parents both die, the brothers embark on an effort to clean out the vast English estate house they left behind, which is jam-packed with flotsam and jetsam. In the process, Alex finds puzzling items, including a wardrobe filled with sex toys, which Marcus tells him to disregard. The last straw is a photograph Alex finds in a secret closet in his mother's room of the two boys at age ten, naked and with the heads deleted. Alex confronts Marcus, asking whether their mother had sexually abused them. Marcus simply nods and says nothing more. For the next 20+ years, Marcus refuses to give any further information to Alex about what happened to them, causing Alex further distress and a sense of inability to understand who he is. He becomes obsessed with learning details of his mother's life, and discovers that her entire life revolved around sex.
In the third part, Marcus and Alex sit down together and Marcus reveals that not only did their mother sexually abuse them together in her own bed, but that she also was involved in a child sex ring wherein she volunteered her own sons to other child predators. She would drive one of the boys (never both) to different male \"friends\" of hers all over Britain and those friends would assault and rape them. This continued up until the age of 14, when Marcus fought back, at which time it stopped for both brothers. Marcus apologizes to Alex for not telling the whole story at age 32, but states that he was not able to do it because he was too traumatized himself, and that denying what had happened helped him forget about it and live a worth-while life.
\"What he didn't tell me,\" Alex continued, \"was that our mother had sexually abused my siblings and me from an early age until we were in our teens. I couldn't have known it at the time, but I am sure this is why I felt so frozen emotionally. There was a crucial piece of the family jigsaw that was missing.\"
\"I want to write this book because I want to know who I am,\" Alex tells their co-writer Joanna Hodgkin. She, too, remarked on their closeness and protectiveness of one another. As unmoored as Alex felt, Marcus was still his rock.
Marcus said he kept his portion of the book purposely \"ambiguous.\" Though the 2013 memoir tells the fraught tale of Alex's accident and all the twists and turns that lead to him learning the truth, it isn't an unpacking of what was actually done to them. The reckoning occurs in the movie, when Marcus sits down across from Alex and shares the details.
Based on the autobiography by twins Alex and Marcus Lewis. Tell Me Who I Am is the story of what Marcus did at 18 years of age, when he was faced with an ethical dilemma. The dilemma being whether he should tell his twin brother the horrific truth about his life after losing most of his memory in the wake of a motorcycle accident, or decide to make up a whole new idilic one.
What I intuited then and see now is that I cannot really tell myself who I am. That intuition is evident in the hook of this song where I beg God to tell me who I am. I believe everyone has that intuition. We can see it in our dissatisfaction with human answers: these can only describe parts of who we are. Here is the key: only God can tell us who we are in a way that is complete, true, and satisfying. God is the one who creates us, who gives us life, who forms us in the very image and likeness of God. God is the one who knows us and loves us perfectly.

In these paintings, Subarna Talukder Bose contemplates the idea of skin that seems to take the center stage in defining identity, race, origin and human persona in our society. Coming from a country with a post-colonial hangover, the debate over fair and dark is a vital social dialogue that she has experienced all her life. By challenging the concept of ideal skin, she wants to find the true representation of individuality. In this process, she also picks up tokens of religious diversity through her patterns and stitched fabric. The patterns and fabric tell stories of the centuries-old Hindu and Muslim culture that have blended thoroughly into a harmonious whole in India. 59ce067264
