On The Other Side Of Life
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Stefanie Brockhaus, Andy Wolff


Lucky and Bongani pretend to be cool and in the know. To survive in a Cape Town township, they learned their lessons early: where to get drugs, where to get money, how to pick up girls and how to get rid of them.

Their mother does not pay much attention to her sons, but at least their grandmother is on their side. The two brothers share everything: the bed, the food and now even an accusation of murder. The first thing they get in prison is an unmistakable lesson about the rules there. No question, newcomers are always at the bottom of the hierarchy. They must learn quickly who may be attacked and who must be served. A matter of survival in jail.

Press

"A perfect film about brotherhood and growing up. Patient and fair."

- Lindsay Mann, Director/Cinematographer for Beachwood Film


"The protagonists, sympathetic yet street smart, are unforgettable."

- Christopher Gray, Boston Pheonix


"A gorgeous portrait of two young men being thrust into adulthood in a beautiful place, tempered by the harsh, violent reality of life in the Darwinian society of a slum."
