Paradise: Hope

(Ulrich Seidl, 2013)

Hopefollows a 13-year-old girl (the daughter of the woman in Love) who is sent to a camp for overweight teens while her mother is in Kenya and develops an unhealthy crush on one of her adult counselors. (100 mins., HDCAM)

Originally conceived as a long feature, his recent Paradise Trilogy is inspired by Austrian playwright Ödön von Horváth’s 1932 work Faith, Hope, and Charity and explores the lives of three women from one family through interconnected stories. If you’ve seen past Seidl films such as Dog Days (2001) or Jesus, You Know (2003), you know he is no stranger to provocation, or controversy.
