THE OTHER SIDE

DIRECTOR: Roberto Minervini - ITALY

“By turns tender and disturbing, Minervini’s powerful docu-fiction hybrid profiles people living on the fringes of society. While they essentially play themselves, he clearly intervenes to create situations rather than observe them. Following his superb Texas-based Stop the Pounding Heart [PIFF 38], Minervini moves to Louisiana, where we come face-to-face with a group of people who seem to have stepped out of Deliverance. Faces carry the lines and scars of hard living, clothes are tattered, living conditions are chaotic. Some are addicts; others are libertarian fanatics. Yet Minervini finds a compassion and tenderness behind their gruff exteriors as he peers into corners that many Americans choose to ignore.”—Toronto Film Festival. In English. Adult. (92 mins.)

Filmography: Stop the Pounding Heart (2013), Low Tide (2012), The Passage (2011)



Interests: Documentary Views.
