In HE’S MY BROTHER, Danish director Cille Hannibal and co-director Christine Hanberg turn their lens on a family’s struggle to find care for a sibling with disabilities. Christine's brother Peter experiences his world through touch, smell, and taste. Now 30 years old, Peter's family is having trouble finding the proper care for his multiple disabilities.

'POV: He’s My Brother' on WSIU TV is made possible by local program sponsor Sangamon Mass Transit District.

‘He's My Brother’ explores how the family works to assure him a dignified life once the parents are gone – and Christine's own uncertainties about one day becoming his primary caregiver.
