Irish Editor Behind Nominated Documentary at Sundance
04 Dec 2017 : Nathan Griffin
An Irish editor is at the centre of a major new documentary which has been nominated for a prestigious Sundance award. Donegal-born Michael Harte, who is based in London, edited ‘Three Identical Strangers, which was nominated in the ‘US Documentary Competition’ category on Wednesday.

Commissioned by CNN Films and Channel 4, Raw Tv’s ‘Three Identical Strangers’ is the incredible true story of three complete strangers who accidentally discover that they’re identical triplets separated at birth. Set in 1980 in New York, the documentary chronicles the 19 year-olds’ joyous reunion, which catapults them to international fame but also unlocks tan extraordinary and disturbing secret that goes beyond their own lives – and could transform our understanding of human nature forever. 

 

 Speaking with IFTN, Editor Michael Harte said:

 

“It’s an incredible honour to be involved with this project and to receive this recognition from Sundance Film Festival is the icing on the cake. This is the third time I have worked with director Tim Wardle but from day one of the edit we knew that the story of this project was incredibly unique. Our job was to bring this story to life, and to do justice to the incredible potential this documentary offered.”

 

Sundance is the largest independent film festival in the United States. Its 2018 list of nominees span 110 independent films from across 29 different countries. 

 

Harte, whose work has also received IFTA, BAFTA, and Grierson nominations, has a decade of experience working on top BBC and Channel 4 productions. Credits include ‘Educating Cardiff/ The East End’, ‘Reported Missing’, ‘The Undateables’, ‘One Killer Punch’, ‘999 What’s Your Emergency’, ‘Hugh’s Fish Fight’, ‘Child Genius’ and most recently, the Grierson- nominated ‘No Place To Call Home’. 

 

Harte also worked extensively on Irish projects including ‘The Savage Eye’ and ‘Murder in Melbourne’ for RTE. He began life as an editor under the wing of Bob Caldwell in Dublin.
