What is behind the walled-up door in the Turajlic family's apartment? A mother and daughter meet for clever conversations about Serbia's - and Europe's - turbulent history.
One of the doors in the Turajlic family's apartment in Belgrade has been closed as long as anyone can remember. Today, the filmmaker Mila's mother, former professor and clever politician Srbijanka, still only lives in one half of the spacious home, which was divided in two when the communists came to power after World War II in 1945. Through conversations between mother, daughter and family friends, the apartment is turned into a microcosm of Serbia's (and Europe's) turbulent history at a time when nationalism is gaining momentum in the East. And where a nostalgic longing for the recent past is blossoming all over Europe. Srbijanka is a formidable political thinker and an irresistible person to hang out with. Even though she is retired today, her political commitment is as passionate as ever. But what is on the other side of the closed door of her home? 'The Other Side of Everything' won the main prize at last year's IDFA festival in Amsterdam.
