Africa Paradis (Benin, France)

Directed by Sylvestre Amoussou

2007, 86 min.

In French with English subtitles

It is 2053. Africa has become a paradise. Europe has disintegrated. Europeans are desperate to migrate to Africa. Sylvestre Amoussou's award-winning first film turns migration on its head while it examines what it's like to be an (illegal) immigrant. Comedy, satire, and tragedy are all rolled into this highly creative and thought-provoking film. Winner of the Best Sets Award and the ECOWAS African Integration Award.
