THE THIRD SIDE OF THE RIVER

DIRECTOR: CELINA MURGA - ARGENTINA

Seventeen-year-old Nicholas’s father is a respected doctor, but he lives a double life: one, seemingly harmonious, with Nico and his mother and siblings; and the other, mere blocks away, with his second family—with whom he spends most of his time and the bulk of his money. The titular third side of the river refers to a sort of purgatory or limbo, effective imagery for Nicholas, who, torn between protecting the family he loves and choosing his own future, becomes tormented by a tension so tightly wound it threatens to become explosive. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese and winner of the Special Prize of the Jury at the Cartagena Film Festival, The Third Side of the River is a devastating drama of family duty and duplicity.

Director Celina Murga will be in attendance 2/20 and 2/21.
