Gimme Some Truth: Crave Hot Docs Showcase: Dear Brother

Sat, Nov 9 / 1 pm
Directed by Julia Horn
2018, Germany, 106 min
German with English subtitles

When Markus Becker is hit by a car, doctors give him only a few days to live. His father makes funeral arrangements, but his brother Michael refuses to accept anything but survival. A portrait of brotherly love and understanding expressed through caregiving, Dear Brother documents the creative strategies and exercises Michael devises to keep his catatonic sibling in this world. Michael helps his brother cultivate a world inside his mind. In doing so, he creates meaning for himself—to the point where it’s hard to say which brother is bringing the other back to life. – Hot Docs

Presented in partnership with Crave Hot Docs Showcase and the Manitoba Brain Injury Association.
