"The Ambassador" will be the opening film at the 24th edition of the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA). The film will be in the feature-length competition programme.
Engaging once again in role-playing as his favourite method, director Mads Brügger traces the dark side of diplomatic life as it unfolds in one of the world's most worn-down states, the Central African Republic.
Danish documentaries are traditionally strong in numbers at IDFA. The remaining Danish line-up will be announced by the festival on 17 October along with the other films in competition.
"The Ambassador" enjoyed its national release on 5 October.
IDFA 16-27 November 2011
