The award winning documentary, The Other Side of Everything, directed by Mila Turajlić, takes us inside the Belgrade home that has kept one family separated from their past for over 70 years. An intimate conversation between the director and the family matriarch, the dynamic Serbian activist and scholar Srbijanka Turajlić, reveals a house and a country haunted by history. What begins as the chronicle of a single person grows into a searing portrait of a charismatic and brilliant woman in times of great historical political turmoil in then Yugoslavia. The Other Side of Everything was awarded the Best Documentary at the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) considered one of the world's premier documentary festivals; it is an official selection of more than 35 festivals including the Toronto International Film Festival, DOC NYC, Doc10, and the San Francisco International Film Festival.
