Los Hermanos / The Brothers Movie Screening & Live Concert at Post Houston

Inspire Film Festival presents a free screening of the critically acclaimed film, Los Hermanos / The Brothers, followed by a live performance with the subjects and world-renowned musicians, Aldo and Ilmar López-Gavilán.

 

The brothers are virtuoso Afro-Cuban musician brothers, born in Havana in the '70s. At 14, Ilmar outgrew his island teachers and was sent to the U.S.S.R. to study violin, ultimately landing as a working chamber violinist in the U.S. Younger brother Aldo grew up mentored by Cuba’s impressive jazz and classical pianists, his extraordinary talent achieving renown on the island, but stymied elsewhere by the 60-year-old U.S. embargo.

 

Though they see each other when family finances and visa restrictions allow, they've never had a chance to collaborate musically—something they've longed for all their lives.

 

Tracking their parallel lives, poignant reunion, and momentous first performances together on stages across the U.S., Los Hermanos / The Brothers is a nuanced, intensely moving view of nations long estranged, through the lens of music and family.
