We are proud to announce that BROTHERS (by Hanro Smitsman) has been selected for the GIFFONI Film Festival in the section ‘Generator +18’ (18 years of age and older).
BROTHERS is a poignant film about Hassan (Achmed Akkabi) and Mourad (Walid Benmbarek) who travel to Syria to search for their missing brother Yasin (Bilal Wahib). As they try to follow Yasin’s trail through Jordan and Syria, Hassan and Mourad are involuntarily involved in the Syrian conflict. Will the brothers, despite the confrontation with the atrocities of the war, be brought closer together and the disintegrated family be reunited, or has the war wounded irreparable wounds?
The 48th edition of the festival will be held from July 20 till July 28 in Giffoni Valle Piana, Italy.
