Paradise: Love (Paradies: Liebe)

This movie screening is a part of a program of Panorama Europe film festival of new european films. Known as Disappearing Act for its first five years, the newly re-named festival continues the mission of showcasing vital European filmmaking as distribution remains challenging for foreign language films in the United States. Panorama Europe gives New York audiences access to what may be their only chance to see these acclaimed films from the festival circuit on the big screen or at all. This year’s festival will take place at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria and at the Bohemian National Hall in Manhattan. It was programmed by David Schwartz, Chief Curator at Museum of the Moving Image.

Presented by the Austrian Cultural Forum 

Austria. Dir. Ulrich Seidl. 2012, 120 mins. Digital projection. With Margarethe Tiesel, Peter Kazungu. Gloom, doom, and hanky-panky in the tropics: looking for a little tenderness, middle-aged divorcee Teresa jets off to Kenya on holiday, where sex with the buff African “beach boys” is plentiful—and ultimately ruinous. The first film in Austrian provocateur Seidl’s (Dog Days, Import/Export) rich and ambitious Paradise trilogy is an unflinching look at love, loneliness, and sexual tourism in a post-colonialist “paradise” that’s at once harrowing and darkly comic, its spectacle of human folly made strangely moving by the director’s peculiar, but deeply felt sense of humanism. 

Tickets: $12 public / free for Museum members. Order online or call 718 777 6800 to reserve tickets. For more information on membership and to join online, visit our membership page.
