From the creator:
‘In this moment of unprecedented prosperity and technological advancement, we find ourselves in a paradox: we are divided.’
Inspired by recent paradigm shifts in global politics, Other Side is a full CG-animated short film exploring the increasing divide between social groups and ideologies. In questioning the dominance of ideas such as meritocracy and individuality, Other Side suggests the possibility of alternative ways to think, and to live.
