Paradise: Love

An installment from Ulrich Seidl’s award-winning trilogy

Chronicling the sexcapades of a tourist named Teresa, Paradise: Love is a film about sex tourism in Africa that premiered at Cannes to critical praise and rave audience reviews. Using Teresa to shed light on the complicated phenomenon, the movie depicts luxurious resort destinations, completely cut off from typical Kenyan society. Yet, Seidl reveals the relationship between the locals making their livelihood as sex workers in high demand by the vacationers. This taboo exploitation explores issues within our society including race and political power. General admission. Over 18s only.
