Brothers Hypnotic  USA / 2013 / 87 mins

For the eight young men in the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, 'brotherhood' is literal: they are 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.
