The rise, fall and resurrection of filmmaker Pim de la Parra, a crazy, controversial and creative genius.
A touching and humorous rollercoaster ride through the world of European filmmaking, from the 60s to the 90s, PARRADOX tells the story of Pim de la Parra’s rise and fall - and rise again. Driven by women, ego and money, the exuberant, idiosyncratic and brilliant De la Parra changed the entire Dutch film scene and helped many young talents find their way. This is a film about creativity and passion, about stupidity and serenity, about tragedy and happiness.
