The Ambassador / Mads Brügger

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 nations? A genre-breaking documentary, The Ambassador highlights both tragic and comic sides of the bizarre and hidden world of African diplomacy, where gin and tonics flow on a daily basis and diamond hustlers and corrupt politicians run free.
