FIN/GER | 2017 | dir. Aki Kaurismäki, with Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kuosmanen, Janne Hyytiäinen

Winner of the Silver Bear in Berlin, Aki Kaurismäki’s new film tells two stories that eventually converge. Khaled, a Syrian refugee, ends up in Helsinki where he applies for asylum without much hope of success. Wikström is a travelling salesman who leaves everything behind to run a restaurant in a remote corner of Helsinki. The Other Side of Hope is one of Aki Kaurismäki’s typical communitiesbound- together-by-fate stories, which demonstrates that the world could and should be a better place.
