STRANGER IN PARADISE is part documentary and part fiction. The film takes place in a classroom where the film's only actor delivers a brutal introductory course in European immigration policy to a group of recently arrived refugees. In three acts the actor alternates between right wing conservatism, humanism and legal regulations for immigration. The film offers a series of thought-provoking and provocative perspectives on the refugee crisis in Europe, delivered with a style that might make you think you're watching a Lars von Trier film.
Guido Hendrikx (The Netherlands, 1987): STRANGER IN PARADISE is Hendrikx' first documentary feature.
