The Other Side by Roberto Minervini won the Cinephile Award at 20th Busan International Film Festival, which is given to the best work by film students among all documentaries this year.
This is Jury's statement: "The film avoids the traditional form of documentary and caught the eyes of the cinephiles through its captivating storytelling that depict the miserable reality of the American minorities."
Roberto Minervini thanked the Jury with these note: "This is one of the most meaningful awards of my career, because it comes from students. Students are politically, culturally and artistically alive. They care about the world around them, and I am very grateful that they cared enough about my film to give it the Cinephile Award. Hence, I’d like to dedicate this award to them. Thank you very much, from the bottom of my heart."
