CPH:DOX 2017: STRANGER IN PARADISE DE GUIDO HENDRIKX

Por Mónica Delgado

Pocas veces una película logra remover las raíces de las políticas sobre la migración como lo hace Stranger in Paradise, a partir de la escenificación de un requisito burocrático, que implica la participación de un actor que simula ser un docente o empleado del estado en tres momentos distintos, donde refugiados reales lidian con un proceso para obtener la residencia en Holanda.

By Ivonne Sheen

The Third Option put us in the middle of several ethical questions about the way contemporary societies have figured life, health, and progress. Along the film, there are different voices that guide us through a minimalistic visual essay (echoing Harun Farocki), which take us from personal testimony, to philosophical and scientific thoughts.

Only in rare occasions does a film stir up the politic roots of migration such as Stranger in Paradise does, and it does that by staging a bureaucratic process with an actor simulating to be a teacher or employee of the state in three different moments, while real refugees deal with a process to get a Dutch residency.
