Paul seems to have it all: a hip job curating playlists for an equally hip streaming service, a beautiful apartment, a girlfriend: when the sky’s the limit, the future can only get better. When his boss offers Paul a promotion in London with the biggest music streamer in the world, the picture is really complete – or is it?

Pre-screening

Before the screening of Goodbye Stranger you will see the short film P (9') by Aaron Rookus. In this 2014 film starring Rifka Lodeizen, a Dutch family is on its way back from a holiday in Germany. When they look for a parking space, it is now clear that this is probably their last trip together. But then a marital crisis, heat, restless hormones and suppressed frustration intertwine in an unexpected way.
