The Other Side of Everything
Spring Grant 2014 - Production Stage
Current project status: COMPLETED
A door locked for 70 years in a house haunted by history. The story of an apartment in Belgrade turns a family chronicle into a portrait of a country in political turmoil. As the filmmaker seeks answers from her activist mother, their intimate conversation questions the responsibility of each generation to fight for their future.
