The Other Side Of Hope

Year: 2017
Directed by: Aki Kaurismaki

Bringing together two men from very different worlds – the displaced Khaled, a stowaway refugee from Syria, and local middle-aged salesman Wikström, who’s bought a flailing seafood restaurant – this bittersweet comedy follows each as they seek a new place to call home. When Khaled is denied asylum, his path crosses fortuitously with Wikström’s.
