Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series: Stranger In Paradise

Thursday, August 17 | 8PM

Presented in collaboration with Chris Boekmann of True/False film festival

Image: Stranger In Paradise, Guido Hendrikx, 2016

// $5 – $10 sliding scale, FREE for kids and teens //

Operating at the intersection of fiction and documentary, Stranger in Paradise reflects on the power relations between Europeans and refugees in a candid fashion.

The film is the debut feature by Guido Hendrikx. Developed in his native Netherlands but shot in Italy, “Stranger in Paradise” offers three takes on immigration, first from an aggressive right-wing tabloid perspective, then from a more humane, liberal stance. Finally, a classroom of real-life migrants are told how their cases may yet be handled.

The Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series celebrates and examines the documentary genre through screenings and dialogue with visiting directors. The series is produced in collaboration with Chris Boeckmann, film programmer for the Columbia, MO-based True/False Film Fest, a pioneering film festival dedicated to exploring creative nonfiction film.

The series will form part of Basilica’s long-standing film program, which is now in its sixth year and continues to present an array of works from new and repertory narrative features, documentaries, experimental films, to video and media art, often with filmmakers and special guests in attendance for a discussion following the screenings.
