Tonight, the Motion Picture Association, the Canadian Embassy, and the Black Screen Office co-hosted a screening of Brother. John Gibson, Vice President of External and Multicultural Affairs for the Motion Picture Association, and Joan Jenkinson, Executive Director of the Black Screen Office, gave remarks regarding the event. Following the screening, director Clement Virgo sat down with Gibson for an in-depth discussion taking the audience behind the scenes of the film.

From the film’s official site:

Propelled by the pulsing beats of Toronto’s early hip hop scene, BROTHER is the story of Francis and Michael, sons of Caribbean immigrants maturing into young men. Exploring themes of masculinity, identity and family, a mystery unfolds during the sweltering summer of 1991, and escalating tensions set off a series of events that change the course of the brothers’ lives forever. BROTHER crafts a timely story about the profound bond between siblings, the resilience of a community and the irrepressible power of music.
