Movember celebrates Black History Month with a giveaway to see BROTHER in theatres

2 minutes read time

February is Black History Month, a time for Canadians to celebrate the many achievements and contributions of Black Canadians and their communities. In celebration, Movember has partnered with Elevation Pictures, a Toronto-based film company, to give away 5 movie prize packs to screen the upcoming release of BROTHER.

Coming to theatres March 17th, BROTHER is the story of Francis and Michael, sons of Caribbean immigrants maturing into young men amidst Toronto's pulsing 1990's hip-hop scene. Exploring themes of masculinity, identity and family, a mystery unfolds during the sweltering summer of 1991. BROTHER crafts a timely story about the profound bond between siblings, the resilience of a community, and the irrepressible power of music.

“BROTHER looks at growing up with a certain gaze upon you and being made to feel uncomfortable in the city in which you've always lived,” shared writer and director Clement Virgo. “These are themes not only of decades past, but of today, and not only ones that relate to young black men, but to all of us. When filmmakers are interested in a subject, you'll see them revisit it over and over again. Stories about immigrants, alienation and masculinity, those are what I'm interested in.”

We’re all about stories that amplify important voices and start important conversations like these.

Enter for your chance to win 2 tickets to a Cineplex screening of BROTHER, as well as a copy of the celebrated novel of the same name by David Chariandy.
