THE AMBASSADOR

Showing: Bijou Cinema, Friday, August 16, 8:30 pm

Director: Mads Brügger
1 hr 33 min, Denmark, Liberia, Central African Republic, 2011
Website



What happens when a very white European man buys a diplomatic title which turns him into an African diplomat overnight - right in the middle of one of central Africa's most failed nation states? In this "performative journalism," Danish journalist Mads Br├╝gger goes undercover as a Liberian ambassador to embark on a dangerous yet hysterical journey to uncover the blood diamond trade in Africa.
