Los Hermanos / The Brothers

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 lives, the brothers have an instinctual connection.

Los Hermanos / The Brothers offers an amazingly heartfelt and eye-opening view of our estranged nations through the lens of music and family. In capturing their reunion and electrifying first performances together, the film shows how family bonds can transcend politics.
