Druga strana svega (The Other Side of Everything) is the winning film at the most prestigious European documentary film festival – IDFA, and the audience in Novi Sad will have a chance to watch it at Cinema Now.
The director and producer from Belgrade, Mila Turajlić speaks in Druga strana svega about the life of her mother, Srbijanka and their family tree, as she delves deep into the many secret corners in the history of Yugoslavia and Serbia. The chronicles of a family in Serbia in this film turn into a portrait of an activist living during tumultuous times, as she questions each generation’s responsibility to fight for its future.
After its premiere at IDFA, Druga strana svega has received another six prizes and ten nominations at various festivals around the world. It has also been featured in many articles by global media giants such as The New Yorker, New York Times, The Guardian, Variety, Hollywood Reporter, Le Mond, and others.
The film is written and directed by Mila Turajlić, produced by Carine Chichkowsky, Hanka Kastelicová, Iva Plemic and Mila Turajlić, while the film score was composed by Jonathan Morali.
The music programme has already been announced; E-Play and Fran Palermo are scheduled for October 26, while Repetitor will be in charge of headlining the festival the following day, October 27.
Apart from Druga strana svega, so far the festival has announced the screening of Otvorena, Granny Project, Taurunum Boy, Zaposlena, Blossom Valley, Teret, Ti imaš noć, Zemlja meda and Aleksi, while more films are to be announced soon. The film selection will encompass some of the most interesting movies by younger authors from Serbia, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia, etc.
The entrance to the festival is free of charge, while it is recommended to reserve a place up front, to avoid large crowds and overall rush at the entrance.
The majority of the authors will be our guests during the two days of the festival, where one of our goals is to organize Q&A sessions after the film projections, as is frequently done during the Cinema City festival.
The project Cinema Now is realized by Cinema City in cooperation with the Novi Sad 2021 – European Capital of Culture Foundation.
