Two Cuban-born brothers, both virtuoso musicians — Aldo and Ilmar López-Gavilán — live on opposite sides of the geopolitical chasm that separates the U.S. and Cuba. But although they lead very different existences, the brothers have an instinctual connection. Following their parallel lives in New York and Havana, LOS HERMANOS/THE BROTHERS offers an amazingly heartfelt — though often startling — view of estranged nations through the lens of music and family. In capturing their momentous reunion and electrifying first performances together, the film shows how family bonds can transcend politics. Featuring an electrifying, genre-bending score composed by Aldo and performed with his brother, Ilmar, and with guest appearances by maestro Joshua Bell and the Harlem Quartet. Official Selection, 2020 Mill Valley and DOC NYC film festivals; 2021 Omaha, Miami and Ashland Independent film festivals.
