Short description of the event: 
Stranger in Paradise is the second movie of the project Edutainment against Social Negligence. This project represents the collection of international documentaries about different social topics, we planned to show to our erasmus and to the students of the University of Padua in general. The aim of the project is to talk and raise awareness about the social topics discussed by the documentaries, to realize they are phenomenons true all around the world. In every appointment we invite an association involved into the social topic and specifically active in Padova. Doing so we want to show to the participants the same social phenomen under a local and closer point of view.

In the case of Stranger in Paradise we wanted to show the struggles that asylum seekers are facing, with institutions and with the everydaylife. The documentary is from Netherlands, but recreate the condition of asylum seekers in Lampedusa, in Italy.

After a brief introduction and explanation about our project and about SocialErasmus, we projected the movie. Finally the members of the association we invited introduced the association, its work and they open a discussion about the topic. Going out the participant could help the association being part of a small but effective chenge in the reality of Padua with a free donation.
