Brothers Hypnotic

Event Photo

“Brothers Hypnotic will restore your faith in humanity, bring a tear to your eye, a heavy stomp to your right foot and, possibly, make you curse your parents for not forcing you to wake up at the crack of dawn for tuba practice.”—CBS

“Lively, funny… philosophical... an intriguing microcosm of the tensions between the hip-hop generation and its civil-rights-era forebears.”—Variety

Brothers Hypnotic official trailer from Reuben Atlas on Vimeo.


For the eight young men in the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, “brotherhood” is literal: they’re all sons of anti-establishment jazz legend, Phil Cohran. Cohran and their mothers raised them together on Chicago’s South Side on a strict diet of jazz, funk and Black Consciousness. Family band practice began at 6 AM.

Now grown, as they raise eight brass horns to the sky, they make music that is at once indescribably joyful, unremittingly exciting, and undeniably together. But as the brothers try to make their own way in the wide world—while playing in the streets of New York City, collaborating with Mos Def, or wowing a jazz festival—they find the values their father bred into them constantly tested. They must decide whether his principles really are their own.

“Mr. Atlas delivers a rousing finale with a shiver-inducing studio session involving father and sons that’s at once a glimpse at deeply felt family dynamics and a moving bridge across generations.”—NY Times

“Beautiful to behold”—LA Times

“When a film successfully footnotes heavy-hitters like Prince, Mos Def, and Damon Albarn (Blur, Gorillaz), the main subject's gotta be tight.”—Austin Chronicle“Sheer crowd pleasing force”—LA Weekly

“Poetic... as much a music documentary as it is an examination of a complex family history over two generations”—OkayPlayer

“Radical, brash and even sentimental”—Film Society at Lincoln Center

“Rollicking”—Hollywood Reporter
