“If Lars Von trier were to make a documentary about the current immigration crisis in europe, it might very well turn out like Stranger in Paradise.”
VARIETY

A simple classroom is the setting for this complex exploration of the starkly relevant topic of mass global immigration. A wholly unique documentary selected to open IDFA 2016, Stranger in Paradise deconstructs the opposing ideologies that have shaped the debate. An actor talks to recently arrived migrants about the gap between their idea of ‘better lives’ in Europe, and the reality of the red tape they will face in order to make these dreams a reality. In turn, the audience is asked to play devil’s advocate and confront their own assumptions about a now familiar narrative. This refreshing and challenging film is not to be missed.

This film has been exempt from classification and is restricted to people over 18 years.
