Austrian director Ulrich Seidl's trilogy gives a disturbing and darkly humorous look at three topics—sexual, religious and youthful disillusion—tackled with his trademark visually symmetrical style. See the current film, Paradise: Faith during its seven-day run, catch up at a screening of the original film, Paradise: Love, and see a special sneak preview of the newest and final chapter, Paradise: Hope. The unsettling stories of the three loosely interconnected films include a vulnerable, frumpy mom on a sexcapade through Kenya (Love), a middle-aged woman's disturbing methods of religious devotion to cover up her own guilty past (Faith) and a 13-year-old girl at fat camp's experimental and erratic behavior (Hope).
