Ine svety. Other Worlds - DVD Cover

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.

This documentary tries to track down the so-called globalizing process and the effect it has on the individual lives and stories of people. The film depicts six different characters and changes in their communities. They are Sarisans, Ruthenians, Jews, Gypsies, but also young people with no particular or special identity, with no attempt to specify their uniqueness.

The filmmakers try to show the end of the traditional diversity, and search 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 documentary follows six of them to the end of the world, to the end of the globalized world and finds that they are a product "Made in Saris".
