“First-time filmmaker Marcel Rasquin brings his award-winning film to the United States. The Venezuelan director explains to CineMovie why the Spanish-language film speaks universally and how an Indian child (from Mumbia) believed the film was made about them.” – CineMovieTV
BROTHER, opening August 24, tells a simple and powerful story about two kids raised together as brothers: Daniel (Fernando Moreno) and Julio (Eliu Armas) — who struggle to become professional soccer players. Daniel is an exceptional striker, a phenomenon. Julio is the captain of the team, a natural leader. Both of them play soccer in the La Ceniza slum. The opportunity of their lives arrives when a headhunter for the Caracas Football Club invites them to a tryout with the team. But their life at the slum interferes and a tragedy shakes them. They will have to choose their destinies on a dirt field. What is more important: the unity of the family or the dream of their lives?
