Last night, a few of our bridges students joined us at the LA Film Festival to see one of the festival’s showcases, “Brothers Hypnotic.”  A heartfelt story about eight brothers raised by anti-establishment jazz legend, Phil Cohran.  As children, they were raised on a “strict diet of jazz, funk and Black Consciousness.”

The film follows the brothers as they make their way on the streets of New York and beyond, while attempting to break into the music business. They struggle with the creation of their own burgeoning stardom, while also trying to stay true to their father’s differing ideals against fame and fortune.
