From the Other Side Regie Chantal Akerman


The film eschews a head-on approach to border politics, preferring instead to wind around and around, inch closer to the heart of the matter, only to pull back, and leave us to our own conclusions. It doesn’t function as a unified piece of beginning-to-end storytelling; rather it episodically captures Akerman’s immersion in this border area and gradually builds force through the accumulated weight of the testimony shared.

The film is nothing less than a clarion call for the divide to be bridged and for tolerance to become the norm, but it never feels like an overtly polemical statement: it bears witness, and this act is more than powerful enough on its own to those who are willing to see.
