In a classroom newly arrived refugees learn a lesson about multifarious Europe. Operating at the intersection of fiction and documentary, Stranger in Paradise reflects on the power relations between Europeans and refugees in a candid fashion.Written by
I went to see this because a friend was speaking on a panel about refugees at a film festival, and this was playing before her appearance. I am so glad I did. Very interesting technique -- an actor playing an intake professional faced with three different groups of refugees (played by actual refugees). I know a fair bit about the refugee crisis, because my dear friend works for a resettlement agency, but I learned even more from watching this film. The panelists at the festival had all just seen the film and agreed it was accurate in portraying what refugees experience trying to navigate the rules/laws, Talented director.
