Brother (15)

Members' Screening

Two brothers sit on a wall against a sunset backdrop.

Clement Virgo turns over the light, the dark, the sweet and the bitter of brotherhood, set in the early days of Toronto's hip-hop scene.

Clement Virgo’s stirring drama received its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival, and is a soulful meditation on wounded masculinity, fractured identity and the power of family. 

Elapsing across three timelines, from childhood to adolescence and onto young adulthood, the film explores the fluctuating relationship between two Jamaican-Canadian brothers. Francis (The Underground Railroad’s Aaron Pierre), the older sibling, is a pillar of the local community. Michael (The Last of Us and The Hate U Give’s Lamar Johnson), by contrast, tries his hardest to be invisible.

When the brothers become witnesses in a shooting the course of their lives changes forever. 

A resonant adaptation of David Chariandy’s 2017 novel – with shades of Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight – Brother ably wrestles with themes of memory, grief and regret.
