STRANGER IN PARADISE
Guido Hendrikx

STRANGER IN PARADISE reflects on the power relations between Europeans and refugees.

In a classroom in Sicily, just inside the walls of Fortress Europe, recently arrived refugees receive lessons from a teacher (Valentijn Dhaenens) who displays some rather unorthodox teaching methods. One moment he mercilessly rejects the refugees. The next he warmly embraces them. Operating at the intersection of documentary and fiction, STRANGER IN PARADISE investigates the power relations between Europe and refugees.
