LOS HERMANOS/THE BROTHERS
Brothers and gifted musicians, pianist Aldo and violinist Ilmar were separated during childhood after Ilmar left their native Cuba to study abroad, beginning a lifetime of being physically apart, yet alway connected by music. Brief windows of open US/Cuban relations allow the brothers’ joyous reunions where they revel in each others’ company and create beautiful classical, jazz, and Latin music together. Filmmakers Ken Schneider and Marcia Jarmel take the viewer on a delightful musical tour through Cuba and the US, with appearances from acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell.
DOC NYC Live event: Thursday, Nov. 12 at 1 ET on Facebook Live – Harlem Quartet member Ilmar Gavilán and his brother Aldo López-Gavilán reunite for a conversation with filmmakers Marcia Jarmel & Ken Schneider.
