The 42nd Festival of New Latin American Cinema begins in Cuba
The film, starring the instrumentalists Aldo and Ilmar López-Gavilán, shows a filial connection through music, above distances and differences.
Los Hermanos stands out on the billboard of the capital’s Yara cinema as a special presentation of the film festival, which takes place in Cuba under the slogan “What the doctor prescribed” and carries out its first stage of exhibition until the 13th of this month.
In the audiovisual Los Hermanos both prodigies stand out, one on the piano and the other on the violin, with careers in different countries and a family bond that has been impacted by the policy of the blockade imposed from the United States (USA) towards the Greater of the Antilles.
The documentary also reflects the value of international cultural exchange and includes the accomplishments and performances of pianist, concert performer and composer Aldo López-Gavilán on US stages with the Grammy Award-winning Harlem Quartet. He also shows those of his brother, Ilmar López-Gavilán in Moscow, Madrid and the USA thanks to his talent with the violin.
The soundtrack of Los Hermanos stands out with the musical piece Brothers titled the homonymous record production, made at the end of the tour of the musical artists.
