My Brothers Dream Awake Mis Hermanos Sueñan Despiertos
Intelligent and thoughtful Ángel is fiercely protective of his younger, more fragile brother Franco. The two have already been incarcerated for a year at a provincial juvenile detention center. They spend their days going to class, playing soccer, talking about girls, and imagining a bright future….beyond the prison walls. Although the siblings have been charged with a petty crime and have more than served time, legal complications prevent their release–until a parent or guardian claims them, they can only dream of a life outside. How long can they remain in this destabilizing limbo and at what cost? Inspired by director Claudia Hauiquimilla’s experiences working with marginalized youth, My Brothers Dream Awake is a moving requiem for stolen youth.
