Southern Circuit Film Los Hermanos/The Brothers will screen online March 13-16, 2022.
Virtuoso Afro-Cuban-born brothers—violinist Ilmar and pianist Aldo—live on opposite sides of a geopolitical chasm a half-century wide. Tracking their parallel lives in New York and Havana, their poignant reunion, and their momentous first performances together, Los Hermanos/The Brothersoffers a nuanced, often startling view of estranged nations through the lens of music and family.
Featuring an electrifying, genre-bending score, composed by Cuban Aldo López-Gavilán, performed with his American brother, Ilmar, and with guest appearances by maestro Joshua Bell and the Harlem Quartet.
DIVIDED BY POLITICS. UNITED BY MUSIC.
“Expertly crafted and beautifully paced, like a great piece of music. A gift to us all.” — Joshua Bell
“Electrifying…’a moving documentary with generous amounts of music.’” – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
