The Other Side of Everything
aka Druga strana svega
First screened in September 2017
Director: Mila Turajlić. Documentary about Srbijanka Turajlić, the filmmaker's mother, and a major antifascist and antiwar activist in the decades spanning Serbia's post-WW2 communist takeover and its disastrous wars of the 1990s.

Twitter Capsule: Turajlić's mother is a major, intrepid historical actor. Couldn't be more timely—say, for US viewers.

VOR:   Well-edited and engrossing though it is, the actual format of the film isn't as fascinating as what its subject recalls. Still: an urgent cautionary tale.
