Brothers Hypnotic
'We must learn to live together as brothers, or perish together as fools.'
--Martin Luther King, Jr.

For the eight young men in the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, 'brotherhood' is literal: they're all sons of anti-establishment Chicago jazz musician, Phil Cohran. They grew up in the same house, in a family of 24 siblings, on a strict diet of jazz, funk, and Black Consciousness. Family band practice began at 6 AM. Now grown, as they raise eight brass bells to the sky-- whether playing in the streets of New York City, collaborating with Mos Def or Prince, or wowing Atlantic records-- they find the values their father bred into them constantly tested. They must decide whether their fathers' principles really are their own.

Directed by Reuben Atlas (Netherlands & USA/2013/86mins). Filmmaker attending.
