DRUGA STRANA SVEGA / The Other Side of Everything

DRUGA STRANA SVEGA / The Other Side of Everything

After exploring, in festival favorite Cinema Komunisto (2011), how the leaders of Yugoslavia used movies to create a national identity, Belgrade-born documentary maker Mila Turajlić mixes the personal and the political to engrossing effect in The Other Side of Every- thing, a combination family memoir and subjective look at the history of Serbia in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Turajlić's guide to the country's governance after the death of Tito up to the present day is her mother, Srbijanka Turajlić, a renowned pro-democracy activist and former Belgrade University professor.
