DIRECTOR: REUBEN ATLAS

Director Reuben Atlas in person.

From a family of twenty-four on Chicago’s South Side, these are the real life brothers of the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, brought up on a strict diet of jazz, funk and Black consciousness, raising brass horns as they play around the world. St. Clair Bourne started on the project before introducing director Atlas to Sam Pollard, who produced the film, and served as a mentor yet again on the project of a young filmmaker making his first documentary.
