Paradise Trilogy (Paradies Trilogie)
“Challenging, complex … ” —Indiewire
Austrian provocateur Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise Trilogy is a subversive series examining the desires and dreams of three women from one family. The films represent an unbelievable achievement: a blunt survey of society and its discontents as viewed through the formal austerity of Seidl’s observational lens.
The Vienna-born director, who began his career working for Austrian television and making documentary films, is well known for his features Dog Days, winner of the Grand Special Jury Prize at the 2001 Venice Film Festival, and Import Export, nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2007.
