Director Reuben Atlas in person for Q&A!
Eight brothers 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 them playing on 42nd street and followed them on tour, to meetings, in practice and at home in Chicago with their legendary musician father Phil Cohran. Their story is remarkable not because of their functional, loving family of one dad, three moms and 24 siblings, but because of their true talent and commitment to music while they develop their own ambitions both with and apart from the family.
