Vortrag und Screening
Mads Brügger: The Ambassador
20. Mai 2014, 19 Uhr, Aula

Mads Brügger will show an Africa stripped of NGOs, Bono, child soldiers and kids with bloated bellies. The kind of people you never see in the documentaries: white businessmen and diplomats, the fat cats in the urban centers, all the people who are in post-colonial Francafrique having a great time. To show this Africa of the affluent, Mads Brügger uses "performative journalism": instead of disguising as a fly on the wall observing neutrally, he dresses for his part and interacts as an agent provocateur. With all the intentions of a journalist to disclose an unnoticed world, he went to CAR as a rich white businessman with diplomatic credentials pursuing all the perks that title brings (like reckless diamond hunts, practicing power misuse) and became a respected member of their society.

Mads Brügger *1972, is a Danish investigative film maker, journalist and TV host. His documentary films have been shown on various film festivals around the world, and 'The Ambassador' was nominated for the Grand Jury prize in the Sundance Film Festival. He is the host of the Danish talk show Den 11.time and the news program Deadline.

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.
