The Netherlands | 2016 | 72 min | English | Guido Hendrikx

In a Sicilian classroom just inside the walls of Fortress Europe, recently arrived refugees learn from a teacher whose attitudes reflects the diverging views of the wider population. One moment he mercilessly rejects the refugees – the next, mollifyingly, he embraces them. Operating at the intersection of documentary and fiction, 'Stranger in Paradise' investigates the power relations between Europe and refugees. Europe is represented by a teacher who drags his class of refugees down into his despair. A plea that borders on the immoral; a welcome charged with a guilt complex; and the compromise between these, made policy: 'Stranger in Paradise' is an unflinching film essay on the mechanisms through which Europe tackles the refugees’ desire for happiness.
