Summer Baltic Movie: The Other Side of Hope

NCK - Ratusz Staromiejski, ogródek

The cinema of the Baltic region tells stories - austere, yet full of vivid emotions, absurd sense of humour and human tales which not always have a happy ending. Welcome to the 2nd edition of the Summer Baltic Movie.

 

On following five Wednesday nights we will present cold as ice film propositions from the North. Sit down, relax in our garden and let us take you to a journey to a land of Baltic film makers.

The event is part of "Colours of the Baltic" project.

The event is held in association with Rada Miasta food&wine.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions for open-air cinemas and public events, the audience will be limited to 30 seats.

The Other Side of Hope (2017), dir. Aki Kaurismäki (Finland)

 „The Other Side of Hope” tells a story of a restaurant owner who unexpectedly meets Khaled, a Syrian refugee. The two men develop a complicated friendship which will come across some serious obstacles. 

Kaurismäki mindfully reflects on the echoes of the worldwide wave of xenophobia and nationalisms. The Finnish director does it with grace, mixing sadness with a pinch of humour and optimism.
