Today we have a new trailer and two posters from the upcoming Danish journalist/director Mads Brügger documentary film The Ambassador.
The story centers on a former U.S. vice president’s privileged son (Arnett), who is assigned an ambassadorship in Europe, where he quickly becomes the quintessential ugly American.
Here’s the synopsis for the film
This darkly comic, genre-bending piece of journalism from international provocateur Mads Brugger rips the corroded lid off the global scheme of political corruption and exploitation happening in one of the most dangerous places on the planet: the Central African Republic. Armed with a phalanx of hidden cameras, black-marked diplomatic credentials and a bleeding-edge wit, Bruegger transforms himself into an outlandish caricature of a European-African Consul. As he immerses himself in the life-threatening underworld of nefarious bureaucrats, Bruegger encounters blood diamond smuggling, bribery, and even murder–while somehow managing to crack amazing razor-sharp barbs at every steps along the way. From each absurdly terrifying/hilarious situation to the next, The Ambassador is a one-of-a-kind excursion.
The Ambassador will be released to theaters on August 29th, 2012.
