Screen Cuba presents: The Brothers/Los Hermanos + Q&A 18

Part of Musical Fridays
Screened in partnership with Screen Cuba
Marcia Jarmel & Ken Schneider, USA, 2020, 84m.

Andy de la Tour, actor-writer, will be in conversation with Gladys Gonzalez, Cuban cinema institute ICAIC, Cuban musician Omar Puente and Nick Gold, Cuban music producer.

The Brothers is a brilliantly-crafted film that affirms the power of art, in this case music. This documentary tracks the lives of two Cuban brothers, both virtuoso musicians. Illmar López-Gavilán leaves Cuba for further tuition, ending up as a violinist in the US, while his younger brother Aldo wins recognition for his extraordinary talent as a classical and jazz pianist, but remains on the island. The brothers long to collaborate musically but are hindered by the policies of the US government. This film is a highly moving portrait of the impact of the US blockade, seen through the lenses of a hugely talented family and magnificent music.
