The Other Side of Everything

Dir. Mila Turajlic, 2017 • Serbia

Ten years following Serbia’s democratic revolution, a look through the keyhole of a locked door in an apartment in Belgrade combines a family memoir with the portrait of a country in turmoil, to reveal a disillusioned revolutionary and her struggle with the ghosts haunting Serbia’s past and present. Filmmaker Mila Turajlic tracks down hidden video footage that had been confiscated from television stations inside Serbia and gathers records overseas, to reveal political resistance that nationalist leaders had airbrushed from the nation’s history, in a bid to strengthen their grip.

Post-screening discussion with Mila Turajlic (director) and Laura Blumenfeld (The Wilson Center).
