The Hypnotic show sold out during the Vermont International Film Festival 2013. They are an eight-piece brass ensemble out o the South Side of Chicago, consisting of eight sons of the jazz trumpeter Phil Cohran. With only horns and a drum set, “Hypnotic” has traveled the world. Their musical style ranges from hip-hop to jazz to funk and rock, including calypso and gypsy music. They call their eclectic blend of sound “now music”, or “Hypnotic”. Reared in the teachings of music since they were children, they grew up on the stage playing as the “Phil Cohran Youth Ensemble”
“Strength of the Storm” directed by Rob Koier tells the moving story of the residents of Weston park, a mobile home park in rural Vermont, that are brought together to fight against issues of economic discrimination after losing their homes to Hurricane Irene. The film weaves together footage of the flood with interviews with members of Weston park. We follow their recovery process from one week after the flood to six months later.
