The new film from the award-winning director of Cinema Komunisto (CinEast 2012), winner of the IDFA Award for Best Feature-Length Documentary and selected as one of the three finalists for the prestigious Lux Prize, The Other Side of Everything is a very personal, intimate take on Serbia's past as seen through the eyes of Srbjanka, a political activist at the centre of this engaging, fascinating documentary.
A locked door inside a Belgrade apartment has kept one family separated from their past for over 70 years. As the filmmaker begins an intimate conversation with her mother, the political fault line running through their home reveals a house and a country haunted by history. The chronicle of a family in Serbia turns into a searing portrait of an activist in times of great turmoil, questioning the responsibility of each generation to fight for their future.
