Stranger in Paradise: European Power Dynamics in Three Acts

A blunt film essay on the power relations between Europe and refugees. In three acts, director and screenwriter Guido Hendrikx reflects on the power relations between Europe and refugees. in which the teacher 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, being dispassionate in the third. This brutally direct classroom exercise is enclosed with a buzzing prologue and reflective epilogue, stressing the absurdity of the power relation.
