My Brother

Simoes, Alana
A touching experience for the film’s subjects and for its audience, My Brother follows a single unmarried woman, Gabriela, as she and her adoptive son, Alexey, decide to adopt a second boy, Mateo. Brazilian Filmmaker Alana Simões followed the lives of the family with her camera in hand for nine years, gathering more than 150 hours of footage. The result is a candid portrayal of the relationship between Alexey and Mateo, demonstrating what it means to build bonds of reciprocal trust despite the internal conflicts they face.
