After a break-up, Mo Bensalah, a painter, throws himself body and soul into his art. Built like a pictorial and sensory puzzle, My Brother is the portrait of an artist held captive between France and Morocco, set to the throbbing rhythms of folk Gnawa music.
My Brother is a film about the internal struggles and complexity of being at once French, Arab and Muslim today.
