The Maine Film Association and Portland Media Center are proud to present the Maine Filmmaker Showcase, featuring the Maine-made film BROTHERS, followed by a talkback and Q&A with the film’s director, Reggie Groff.

BROTHERS trailer:

This is a film about a family who have faced incredible adversity but continue to push forward. It centers around Mike, an artist and filmmaker, wheelchair bound with Muscular Dystrophy and only the use of two fingers, who is grappling with the recent loss of his brother and daily caregiver. Mike’s younger brother, JT, the athletic, charismatic and once potential pro-skateboarder, took his own life after years of deepening  schizophrenia.  We learn what it takes to be a parent and a brother with overwhelming grief and yet we see how love and creativity give the family the strength to carry on.

Doors open at 6:30pm. Suggested Donation: $5.

The Maine Filmmaker Showcase is presented by the Portland Media Center and the Maine Film Association, and made possible by the generous support of the Maine Humanities Council.
