Paradise: Love (Trailer)


A fictional film that examines sex tourism in Kenya, and is making waves in Cannes this week! [Guidance: Some female nudity.]

 This is the first of a trilogy of films titled Paradise by critically acclaimed documentarian Ulrich Seidl. This film, Love, is about a woman that goes on vacation for the first time, looking for love from beach boy after the next, to serial disappointment.  It aims to blur the line between exploiter and exploited with the added complexity of the still active colonialist sway of the images such as that of the women sunbathing on the beach with a rope dividing them and the beach boys displaying themselves in the hope of attracting any one of them to make his wage. This piece is provocative, making it the most talked about film at Cannes 2012, this past week. It was nominated for the Palm d'Or.
