HERMANO

DIRECTOR: Marcel Rasquin - VENEZUELA

This year’s Venezuelan submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar tells the bittersweet tale of a brother’s love and loyalty put to the test. Two brothers, who have grown up playing soccer together in the dirt fields of their barrio, have their prayers answered when a scout gives them the opportunity to try out with the Caracas Football Club. Daniel dreams of being a professional player, but Julio’s more pragmatic goals of providing for the family lead him down a darker path. As the details of their lives unfold through simple everyday events like the baking of a cake, a raucous party, or a rooftop romance, we see the sinister undercurrents that threaten to derail everything they hope for and the bonds of family pushed to the limit. (96 mins.)

First Feature Film.
