The Other Side of Hope, GFT, 26 May – 8 June, 2017

the other side of hope

Six years after the sublime, award-winning Le Havre, Aki Kaurismäki returns with the second film in a planned trilogy focusing on port cities. Kaurismäki regular Sakari Kuosmanen stars as Wikström, a poker-playing restaurateur and former travelling salesman who crosses paths with a Syrian refugee (Sherwan Haji) who has just arrived in Finland. Shot on 35mm in Helsinki by Timo Salminen, The Other Side of Hope offers topicality, deadpan humour and plaintive emotions as Kaurismäki tackles one of the most pressing global issues: the plight of the refugee. 
Specially commissioned programme notes will be available.
