Brothers of the Head

Brothers of the HeadMy dear filmmaking friend Louis Pepe and his partner Keith Fulton have released their first feature film, Brothers of the Head. Written by Tony Grisoni (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) from the the novel of the same name by Brian Aldiss, it’s the story of conjoined twins who are transformed by a rock promoter into a London punk band, thrust into fame, and battle each other for the attentions of a woman. And then the story gets weirder. Check out the interesting but challenging to navigate official site and the film’s IMDB page for details, and see the trailer here.

Louis and Keith’s previous work includes Lost in La Mancha, the award-winning documentary of Terry Gilliam’s doomed attempt to make the film “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” and The Hamster Factor and Other Tales of Twelve Monkeys.

Brothers of the Head opens at the IFC Center in Manhattan starting July 28th and at Santa Monica’s Nuart Theater beginning August 4th. Tickets can be purchased in advance on the IFC Center website and the Nuart website. The film will show in select cities after that. No Pittsburgh dates yet, but with good response elsewhere our chances of seeing it on local screens improve.
