A cutting-edge Dutch/Indonesian filmmaker will show and speak about one of his films Monday night in Potsdam. It's a part of the Cinema 10 film series. Leonard Retel Helmrich's documentary "Promised Paradise" has been banned in Indonesia. Helmrich is known for inventing a special technique for filming his documentaries, called "single shot cinema." "Promised Paradise" traces the story of a puppeteer who tries to arrange an interview with the perpetrators of the 2002 terrorist bombing at a nightclub in Bali. Helmrich spoke with David Sommerstein. "Promised Paradise" shows at 7:15 pm Monday night at the Roxy Theater in Potsdam.
