Akhi: Brothers Beyond Fate tells the story of Mohammad, a Muslim teen in Bethlehem, and, Ryan, a Black young man in Brooklyn. Both face lives of chaos and conflict, but neither joins a jihad or a gang; instead, they participate in a writing group that spans 5,000 miles and ignites a grassroots movement for positive change. Together, the “brothers” take their place on the world stage as creative leaders. The film delves beneath superficial renderings of at-risk youth and challenges the broad strokes painted in the media. More importantly, it imbues the audience with wonder and lets them marvel at the brothers’ ability to convert the impediments of their environments into mechanisms for advancement.
