Toivon Tuolla Puolen (The Other Side of Hope) is a 2017 Finnish comedy-drama written, produced, and directed by Aki Kaurismäki. It was selected to play in competition at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival.

Finland’s master of deadpan comedy, Aki Kaurismäki (Lights in the Dusk, Le Havre), returns with the story of an unlikely friendship between a Syrian asylum seeker and an elderly Finnish restaurant owner. Winner of the Berlin Silver Bear for Best Director, it’s a beautiful, timely film from one of the world's leading auteurs.

The film also received support through Creative Europe’s Slate funding scheme.
