De l'autre coté

From the Other Side

It's an old story, yet renewed and more atrocious each day. Risking their lives, leaving everyyhing behind, the poor make the move to the other side in hopes of securing survival. But once there, they find they are not wanted for anything more than the lowest jobs that no one else wants to do. In this film, the 'other side', is North Amercia, and the poor are mostly Mexicans. Chantal Akeman gives these men, women and children the chance to tell their dramatic tales, which they do with surprising  simplicity: their arrival from the south, their arginalized lives in the north, the few success stories among their ranks. With US Marshals often hot on their trail, desperate migrants risk death crossing the desert on foot to enter the United States illegally. 'De l'autre coté' is an extremely lucid narrative, shot to provide strong visula impact, as in the sequences filmed along the wall that as been contructed in a strech of US - Mexican border.


Il regista / The Director

regista

Chantal Akerman, born in Brussels in 1950, began making documentaries and fiction films in 1968. Know for her experimental bent, she has also designed sets and scenary for theather. In Je tu il elle (1974) and especially in Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (1975), she conducted lenghtly and ruthless analyses of her female protagonists, whic won her her critical and audience acclaim. Among her best known works: Un divan à New York (1996), Sud (1999) and La captive (2000), based on a novel by Marcel Proust.



'What fascinates and frighhtens me when I decide to make a documentary is the improvisational aspect. I let myself be led almost blindly, so that I become a kind of slate upon which all I see is recorded, totally ope. From thi late the foòm emerges, or reveals itself even after a long gestation period'
