A touching and humorous rollercoaster ride through the European filmmaking world from the 60s to the 90s. The film tells the rise and fall of Pim de la Parra, a crazy, controversial and creative genius, and of his resurrection. Driven by women, ego and money, De la Parra celebrates life in abundance while producing and directing dozens of films, changing the entire Dutch film industry and helping many young talents on their way. PARRADOX is a film about creativity and passion, about stupidity and serenity, about tragedy and happiness. De la Parra is the director of the Dutch/Surinam classic film Wam Pipel, also showcased in the festival.
