The new arthouse film by the world renowned Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki tells the story of a Finnish travelling salesman (Sakari Kuosmanen) and a Syrian refugee (Sherwan Haji), whose paths happen to cross. In his own inimitable style, Kaurismäki (Le Havre, Man Without a Past) gives a funny yet compassionate rendition of a contemporary tale of hope and humanity. The film has English subtitles.

> The Other Side of Hope will be screened on 1 May in Movie theatre ’t Hoogt.
