Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise Trilogy

Austrian director Ulrich Seidl is known for employing a documentary-like style in telling stories that vacillate between moments of raw, unacceptable social behavior and of absurd humor.

Lovefollows a middle-aged single Austrian mother who travels to Kenya as a sex tourist, looking for love in the arms of one of the many young men who cater to the needs of older European women. (120 mins., HDCAM)

Originally conceived as a long feature, Seidl’s recent Paradise Trilogyis 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.
