Brothers Hypnotic
The Film Society of Lincoln Center's 2013 lineup for SOUND + VISION (July 26 to August 1) - a music documentary series exploring a range of musical artists, genres and styles - includes Brothers Hypnotic, an 86-minute feature documentary from director Reuben Atlas, which follows 8 brothers who make up the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, taking on the music business while trying to adhere to their father’s vision of music as a path to consciousness-raising. 

First-time director Atlas met the ensemble while they were playing on 42nd street in NYC, and followed them on tour, to meetings, in practice and at home in Chicago with their legendary musician father Phil Cohran - a loving family of one dad, three moms and 24 siblings.

The film will screen at Film Society's SOUND + VISION on Saturday, July 27 at 4:45pm.

“This series is an homage to the people who create our music, who struggle and work to have it heard and, when they succeed, help us connect with one another. Music is a catalyst for rebellion, progress, and fulfillment on both a personal and social level,” says Film Society Programmer Isa Cucinotta. “Sometimes music is a lifeline for the musician, sometimes a springboard, but it always serves to unite listeners and it is that energy that is captured in these films.
 
You'll find several titles we've been following on S&A, including Charles Bradley: Soul of America, Muscle ShoalsViva Cuba Libre: Rap Is War, and Bayou Maharajah: The Tragic Genius of James Booker.
 

Tickets for the screening series are now on sale. Single screening tickets are $13; $9 for students and seniors (62+); and $8 for Film Society members. A three-film package is $30; $24 for students and seniors (62+); and $21 for Film Society members. Discount prices apply with the purchase of tickets to three films or more.  Visit www.FilmLinc.com for complete film festival information.
 
All screenings will be held at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, 144 West 65th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
