Documentary In Bloom Presents: Brothers Hypnotic
Monday, March 24th-Sunday, March 30th, 7:30pm
Documentary In Bloom Presents:
Brothers Hypnotic
U.S. Theatrical Premiere
Curated by Livia Bloom
Dir. Reuben Atlas, 2013, 84 mins.
At 6:00 a.m. sharp, the numerous children of jazz musician Phil Cohran began band rehearsal. A family of 24 living on Chicago's South Side, the "brothers" of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble were raised by their father and three mothers on a strict diet of jazz, funk and Black Consciousness. In this award-winning film from the festivals including SXSW, Urbanworld and HotDocs, the band works with artists including Mos Def, Blur and Prince, while struggling to maintain their own identity and bring their distinctive blend of jazz, hip-hop, and funk from the halls from Europe to the streets of New York City.

Friday, March 28th and Saturday, March 29th: Post-film Q&A with director Reuben Atlas and Hypnotic Brass members in person!

"Does an excellent job of capturing and contextualizing the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble's brand of sinewy musical magic. Lively, funny and at times philosophical, Reuben Atlas' debut documentary chronicles the rise of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble with great sensitivity." - Andrew Barker, Variety

"When a film successfully footnotes heavy-hitters like Prince, Mos Def, and Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz), the main subject's gotta be tight." - Kate Messer, Austin Chronicle

"Brothers Hypnotic will restore your faith in humanity, bring a tear to your eye, a heavy stomp to your right foot and, possibly, make you curse your parents for not forcing you to wake up at the crack of dawn for tuba practice." - Stephen Swanson, CBS
