From the Other Side
De l’autre côté

Chantal Akerman, 2002 Color. 99 min.
In French, Spanish & English with English subtitles

Celebrated Belgian director Chantal Akerman travels to the border towns of Agua Prieta and Sonora, Mexico where thousands of Mexicans teeter between poverty and opportunity.

Chosen by Les Cahiers du cinéma as one of the 10 best films of 2002, From the Other Side offers a powerful yet unsentimental portrait of Mexicans who leave everything and risk their lives to cross the border into Douglas, Arizona where hope of a better life awaits.
