Southern (dis)comfort

Italian director Roberto Minervini has devoted his career to portraying obscure and unglamorous sides of American society, and THE OTHER SIDE is no exception. In this poetic documentary we are guided through the marginalized communities of rural Louisiana, where sex, guns and homemade drugs form the cornerstones of daily life. Journeying through the landscape that inspired films and tv-series such as DELIVERANCE, GUMMO and "True Detective", THE OTHER SIDE is a haunting and frequently disturbing trip through the backwoods of modern-day America.
