Don't miss The Other Side of Hope for Sunday Cinema at 4:30pm this Sunday Dec. 17 at the Royal Theatre in Trail. The master of deadpan comedy is back! A poker-playing restaurateur and former traveling salesman befriends a group of refugees newly arrived to Finland in Aki Kaurismäki's compassionate and timely tragicomedy The Other Side of Hope. Khaled, A Syrian refugee searching for his sister in Helsinki, is hidden in the restaurant’s storeroom by Wikström and his employees when the authorities want to send him back to war-torn Aleppo. “Maverick as ever but fully engaged with the modern world, Kaurismäki dials back his trademark absurdism with a wry allegory of human struggle, empathy and connection.” - Phil de Semlyen, Empire Magazine Winner of the Silver Bear for Best Director at the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival.
