Sinopsis

Rooted in the true sense of "independent" in voice and image, The Other Side is a personal essay documentary imbued with magical landscapes and searing observations softly spoken during the director's cinematic trek along the United States-Mexican border. Throughout the 2,000-mile journey, Texas-based filmmaker Bill Brown considers the border as an historical and political geography of aspiration, insecurity, and transition. He talks to undocumented immigrants who have risked their lives to cross the border and to border activists whose politics have put them at odds with the guardians of homeland security. A native Texan who has made several documentary shorts, Brown is a sublime, poetic master of wide-open, in-between spaces, of desert and deserted vistas. The Other Side is a rare chance to discover one of America's leading new cinematic voices. –Lincoln Center Film Society
