    • Synopsis
    • Saris, in the East of Slovakia is a very specific border region between Eastern and Western Europe. Borderline between rational individualism of the West and expressive emotionality of the East. The territory in the foothills of Eastern Carpathians has always been strongly traditional but also a crazy mix, „little Babylon“ of a place.
      Europe has started its transformation again and life is changing rapidly. Film is trying to track down the so-called globalizing process and the effect it has on the individual lives and stories of the people.
      The film depicts six different characters and the changes in their close communities. They are Sarisans, Rusyns, Jews, Gypsies, but also young people with no particular or special identity, with no attempt to specify their uniqueness. Film is trying to show the end of the traditional diversity, and searching for the beauty of the original, the authentic, the interesting and the individual.
      People from the region of Saris have been often called „crazy Easterners“. The OTHER WORLDS are following six of them to the end of the world, to the end of the globalized world. They´re a product „made in Saris".
