The other side, dert-ànna

Directed and written by Claudia Marschal

52 minutes


Alsace, France. A region with plentiful vineyards, mountains, flourishing forests and picturesque lakes. Population 1,836,000.

Castroville-Texas, the United States of America an ordinary village trapped between Highway 90 and miles of harsh sunburnt fields. Population 2664.

An investigation begins. Cowboys are speaking a language unknown to some but essential to many. Secrets are shared. Connections rediscovered. Sentiments of yesteryear evoked.

But the land remains dry. For years they live in hope. They pray for rain.

A miracle may happen, even if it means a cowboy must leave his beloved land to wander across the other side.
