“The Tale of Two Brothers” is a short film produced by a student team from the School of Performing Arts, School of Visual Arts, Graphic Design, and Accounting, funded by an student SEAD grant.

The team will discuss their production that culminated with a screening at the Lyric Theater in May.

The plot focuses on a society whose views are centered around their religion. Within the story, the different characters represent different takes on religion. The two brothers at the center of the story are forced to play opposing roles because of their clashing morals and views on religion. One brother, Hakan, was exiled at a young age for a simple mistake that was blown out of proportion and the other brother, Aleki, is the protector of the tribe. Aleki is raised by his mother and the elder of the tribe, Cerulean, while Hakan is taken in by a tribe of exiles and raised by Maleko, a previous council member in their society. Their very different experiences shape their views on religion and society and guide them throughout the story.
