film screening: the other side

APAICS is hosting a screening of The Other Side. The Other Side is the product of a trip around the country that Joe, the creator of the film, took with his dog Charlie. Joe had a hunch that how angry we are at each other politically is caused, at least in part, by a lack of understanding. To see if he was right, Joe sold his car, bought an old van, took a break from pursuing the acting thing in Los Angeles and travelled around the US interviewing conservatives, trying to understand “the other side.” The Other Side: A Liberal Democrat Explores Conservative America is the product of that journey.
