Two combatants are trapped in a mysterious hotel where they can’t die and don’t know how to leave. Stuck in a seemingly endless cycle of violence, the two combatants must change their tactics to save themselves.
A film about conflict and empathy, The Other follows two characters, Shepherd and Audre, who are parallels to each other and breaking the cycle of violence depends on whether they can begin to understand one another.
The Other has received recognition in high school, student, and non-student short categories at competitive juried film festivals across the country.
At the Roxbury International Film Festival, the largest festival in New England that celebrates people of color, the film was honored with an award for Best Youth Filmmaker.
Elsewhere, the film picked up awards for Best Film, Best Director, and Best Cinematography along with nominations and inclusion in highly selective festivals as an official selection.
“Tones of conflict and empathy – nuanced concepts and filmmaking far beyond Trifunovic’s 17 years. A young filmmaker to watch!”
