“If I really gained freedom, then this is the most unusual job I’ve ever done” – Srbijanka Turajlic
Fifteen years after the democratic revolution in Serbia, the look through the closed door lock in one apartment in Belgrade reveals the history of a family, the burning political past of a country, and the struggle and disappointment of a participant in the revolution.
Through intimate conversations with mothers and daughters, “The Other Side of All” examines the outcomes of political engagement in the era of nationalism, civil war and dictatorship. As the director asks for responses from his mother’s activist, the chronology of a family becomes a portrait of a society during political turmoil, and raises the question of whether the new generations continue and shape the struggle for the future of the country they live in.
