Chorleywood Film Club season finale
The Chorleywood Film Club season finale is a special screening of The Other Side Of Hope screening on Friday 15th June. This is a wry, melancholic comedy about the Syrian Refuge crisis. It follows the fortunes of two people searching for a place to call home. As usual, the film will screened at Chorleywood War Memorial Hall.
A comedy-drama about a Finnish travelling salesman turned restaurant owner and a Syrian refugee confronts the realities of refugee life. With director Aki Kaurismäki’s usual dry, offbeat wit, this film finds courage, hope and kindness as the two mismatched outsiders try to rebuild their lives.
“The Other Side of Hope questions our attitudes to refugees, salutes the kindness of strangers and becomes an ode to the power of compassion to change all our lives.”
Alan Hunter, Daily Express
