Plot & Details
This darkly comic, genre-bending documentary that exposes the corrupt business of selling diplomatic titles to exploit the lucrative and limited resources of war torn, third world nations. Filmmaker/journalist/provocateur Mads Brugger uses humor in his jaw-dropping descent into one of the most dangerous places on the planet: Central African Republic. From each absurdly terrifying and hilarious situation to the next, 'The Ambassador' is a one-of-a-kind excursion from the man whom The Huffington Post has called "the most provocative filmmaker in the world."
