Trailer: The Ambassador (2011)

Mads Brügger, a danish filmmaker/satirist/journalist, bought himself a diplomatic passport then went to live in the Central African Republic and to see what that passport could gain him. And he captured the entire thing on film. The Ambassador is a genre-breaking, tragic comedy about the bizarre, hidden world of African diplomacy, where gin-tonics flow on a daily basis and diamond hustlers and corrupt politicians run free.

The film was released this month (Oct 2011) and will open the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam on 16 Nov 2011.
