Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pietra Brettkelly is a New Zealand documentary director and producer, best known for the film The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins. Brettkelly was a journalist before becoming a film maker. When filming in southern Sudan in 2006 for the television documentary series Ends of the Earth for Television New Zealand, Brettkelly met Italian artist Vanessa Beecroft. Beecroft is famous for her provocative performance art, and while in Sudan for a project had decided to try and adopt motherless twins. Brettkelly had previously produced a documentary on international adoption, The Rescue of Iani and, along with cameraman Jacob Bryant, eventually followed Beecroft's adoption efforts over 16 months, which formed the basis for The Art Star and the Sudanese Twins.
