FILM INFORMATION

Synopsis Constructing the Rosario-Victoria Bridge in the interior or Argentina is a two-year process, which transforms lives on both sides of the river. As the bridge take shape, carefree boys grow into teenagers, a mysterious engineer touches the life of his landlord, and a photographer documents the process of change. But no one is prepared for the transformation that begins only once the bridge is complete. Grosso uses the metaphor of a bridge to reflect the themes of passage, union, and transition in his characters' lives.

About the Director Hugo Grosso was born in Rosario, Argentina, in 1955. He studied filmmaking at Taller de Cine Arteon, EPCTV de Rosario and UNR. Grosso helped to create a school for filmmaking and TV in Rosario, where he has taught and held the post of headmaster at various times since 1984. He also helped to form the Festival Latinoamericano de Video de Rosario, and has held government positions in audio-visual media. Grosso's documentaries include La Salvaje: Rita, con el alma el desnudo (1999) and Donde Comienza el Camino (Where the Road Begins, 2005). On Each Side is his first feature film.

REVIEWS

"Atmospheric, unexpected...Grosso nimbly juggles multiple characters and tonalities with a documentarian's eye for detail. 'On Each Side' amply attests to the vitality of new Argentine cinema." –Variety

“Grosso’s work finds dramatic arcs where many would see daily life...On Each Side brings us stories of small peoples’ lives and demonstrates the universal peculiarities that define people as individuals. The narrative is strong and funny, while Grosso’s visuals provide a strong sense of intimacy. “-Notable Noise
