Paradiso Stills / Paradiso Still Lives

Film portrait based on the work of Dutch photographer Max Natkiel, who photographed thousands of young visitors of the Amsterdam-based pop venue Paradiso, in the early eighties. Filmmaker Marc Geerards tracked down 200 people and asked them to appear in front of the camera again, this time a film camera and in a setting of their own choice. A fascinating social document which portrays the passing of time, and the evolvement of the individual as well as the sub culture.
