Stranger in Paradise (film)
Venue: Kino Lumière, Bratislava
Date: December 11
A discussion with three foreigners residing in Slovakia will follow after.
This is, in a nutshell, what the film titled Stranger in Paradise is about. The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) will screen it for the first and the only time at the Lumière cinema in Bratislava on December 11 at 18:00.
“We are screening the film within the Global Migration Film Festival in Slovakia,” head of IOM Bratislava Zuzana Vatráľová said, as quoted in a press release.
The festival is held in 100 countries on the occasion of International Migrants Day, which falls on December 18.
After the screening, a discussion with three foreigners living in Slovakia will follow. Both events are free, but tickets are necessary and can be collected at the cinema during its opening hours.
A Nepali, Kazakh, and Ukrainian
One of the foreigners sitting on the panel will be a management student from Kazakhstan who decided to stay in Slovakia after her studies. A Ukrainian who founded a health care startup will join the panel, too.
Moreover, an owner of the first Nepali restaurant in Bratislava will recount his journey to Slovakia, experience with Slovaks, and his reasons for settling down in the Slovak capital.
The EU’s statistical office (Eurostat) said in 2017 that there were a total of 39.9 million migrants living in the EU member states. Of them, 21.6 million came from countries outside of the EU.
