The Other Side of Hope
February 26, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
THIS SCREENING IS FREE FOR UWM STUDENTS AND UNION CINEMA MEMBERS!
$5 General Admission
Displaced Syrian, Khaled, lands in Helsinki as a stowaway; meanwhile, middle-aged salesman Wikström leaves behind his wife and job and buys an unprofitable seafood restaurant. After Khaled is denied asylum, he decides not to return to Aleppo—and the paths of the two men fortuitously cross. Deadpan and deeply empathetic, The Other Side of Hope is a bittersweet tale of human kindness in the face of official indifference.
(Aki Kaurismäki, Finland, Finnish w/ Eng sub, 100min, 2017, DCP)
