A thought-provoking, remarkably layered winner of the IDFA Award for Best Feature-Length Documentary and the Lux Film Prize finalist.
A locked door inside a Belgrade apartment has kept family separated from their past for seven decades. As the director begins an intimate conversation with her mother – a retired university professor and renowned pro-democracy activist – the political fault line running through their home reveals a house and a country haunted by ghosts of the past. The chronicle of a family in Serbia turns into a searing portrait of an activist in times of great turmoil, from communism in Yugoslavia, through the Milosevic regime, until the present day, questioning the responsibility of each generation to fight for their future. An intriguing documentary by acclaimed Serbian filmmaker Mila Turajlic (‘Cinema Komunisto’) nominated for this year’s European Film Awards and awarded with more than twenty international awards.
‘The other side of everything’ is the only LUX Film Prize documentary nominee this year. Read more about this special screening provided by European Parliament here.
