Description

Sundance award-winning director Mads Brügger returns with his latest film of “performative journalism.” Obtaining backdoor Liberian papers, he travels to the former French colony of the Central African Republic masquerading as a businessman on a diplomatic mission with the public intention of creating of a match factory. Privately, however, his aim is to gain access to the country’s diamond-rich power brokers. In this clandestine, darkly humorous and often disturbing endeavour, Brügger exposes how power truly works in the seedy world of those who abuse diplomacy, and reveals the multitude of perks afforded to corrupt ambassadors. This is the story of Africa for the affluent and of those who flaunt a system in which the winners and losers are often the most unexpected.
