Stranger in Paradise

Stranger in Paradise

Original title: Stranger in Paradise

Genre: Documentary
Netherlands, 2016, 77'
Director and writer: Guido Hendrikx
In three acts, director and screenwriter Guido Hendrikx explains the European view of the refugee crisis.

The man receives three groups of migrants, each time adopting a different attitude: dismissive in the first part, then full of empathy and good will in the second. In the last part, he represents actual European immigration policy, with all its complex rules. Hendrikx shows where the refugees’ dreams clash with reality and forces us to think hard about our own position. Is it human to categorize someone else’s life? The absurdity of the dilemma is expounded upon in the prologue and epilogue to this political essay.
