Songs My Brothers Taught Me

Directed by Chloé Zhao

“A contemplative, unhurried masterpiece.” —Cinefilles

Shot on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota with a local cast of actors, the film explores the strong bond between siblings as each defines the concept of home. “Stirring … with bone deep identity (Hollywood Reporter),” Songs My Brothers Taught Me delivers a strong emotional payoff. Nominated for Best First Feature at the 2015 Independent Spirit Award and screened in the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, New Directors/New Films, and at the Cannes Film Festival Directors’ Fortnight. 2015, DCP, 98 minutes.
