Watch Trailer For Venezuelan Sports Drama 'Hermano' (Brother) - In Select Theaters August 24

The 2010 acclaimed Venezuelan film Hermano (Brother), directed by Marcel Rasquin from a script penned by Rasquin and Rohan Jones, will have a limited theatrical release starting Friday, August 24 at the AMC Empire 25 and Cinema Village theaters in New York City, and in several cities across the country including Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, San Diego and San Francisco (see venue information below).

Hermano, an Academy Awards Submission for Venezuela in 2011, focuses on the journey of brothers Daniel (Fernando Moreno) and Julio (Eliú Armas), who struggle to become professional soccer players amidst slum life and tragedy. The film won Best Feature at the 2011 Naples International Film Festival, an Audience Award at the 2010 Los Angeles Latino Film Festival and won Best Film at the 2010 Moscow Film Festival.

Here’s the full synopsis:

Raised as brothers, intense teammates and competitors on the soccer field – the gregarious, swaggering Julio (Eliu Armas) and the wiry, focused Daniel/“Gato” (Fernando Moreno) have remained virtually inseparable ever since the newborn Daniel was found abandoned in a trash heap in their La Ceniza slum. The opportunity of their lives arrives when a football scout invites them to try out for the city’s top professional team, just as a tragic act of violence threatens to tear them apart and prevent them from achieving their dreams.

Hermano also stars Alí Rondón, Beto Benites, Gonzalo Cubero and Marcela Girón.
