INVESTUGATING PARADISE







Exquisite wine and stunning virgins – 72 for each single man! Such a fantastic image of the after-world is being spread through YouTube by Salafistic sheiks. Journalist Nedjma is doing research on the religiousness of the Algerian people and their vision of the afterlife and how these fantasies shimmer in the daily reality. The movie itself mixes documentary and fiction: Nedjma is a character, the interviews are real. There are relevant questions in the vivid conversations.
