The opener of Ulrich Seidl´s “Paradise Trilogy” is about Teresa, for whom paradise is to be found in more earthly love. In Kenya, Teresa goes from one "Beach Boy" to the next, from one disappointment to the next and finally she must recognize: on the beaches of Kenya love is a business. Paradise: Love tells of sex tourism, older women and young men, the market value of sexuality, the power of skin colour, Europe and Africa, and the exploited, who have no choice but to exploit others. Director of award-winning fiction films such as Dog Days, Ulrich Seidl conceived the “Paradise Trilogy” on three women in a family who take separate vacations.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
