You can always count on Danish journalist-filmmaker Mads Brügger to stir the pot. In the award-winning documentary that put him on the map, "The Red Chapel," Brügger headed to North Korea with two Danish-Korean comedians under the guise of a cultural exchange to show what life is really like for the country's citizens. With his follow-up "The Ambassador," which played at Sundance in January, he makes his way to the Central African Republic (Car) posing as a Liberian consul to show what happens when a very white European man buys his way into being a diplomat in one of Central Africa's most failed nations. The film is currently playing in select theaters and is available on VOD. Below, Brügger shares one of his favorite scenes from the documentary, in which he meets with a member of parliament related to the president of the Car.
