Film Features Cuban-born Virtuoso Musicians

Sep 1, 2021 | A & E | 0 comments

Take a musical trip to Cuba with World Community’s next film series offering, Los Hermanos: The Brothers available online anytime from September 10 – 12.

Virtuoso Afro-Cuban-born brothers—violinist Ilmar and pianist and composer Aldo—live on opposite sides of a geopolitical chasm a half-century wide. Tracking their parallel lives in New York and Havana, their poignant reunion, and their momentous first performances together, Los Hermanos/The Brothers offers a nuanced, often startling view of estranged nations through the lens of music and family.

Featuring an electrifying, genre-bending score, composed by Aldo López-Gavilán, performed with his brother, Ilmar, and with guest appearances by maestro Joshua Bell and the Harlem Quartet.

This screening is co-sponsored by the Immigrant Welcome Centre with funding from the province of BC. Save the date for the next film September 24 – 26.
