'The Ambassador' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Thu Sep 27, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The acclaimed documentary from Mads Brügger is getting the high-definition treatment this October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Image Entertainment is prepping 'The Ambassador' for Blu-ray on October 16.

'The Ambassador,' a darkly comic, genre-bending documentary that exposes the controversial business of selling diplomatic titles that gives wealthy businessmen the opportunity to exploit the lucrative and limited resources of war torn, third world nations. Filmmaker/journalist/provocateur Mads Brügger (Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner for 'Red Chapel') uses humor in his jaw-dropping descent into one of the most dangerous places on the planet: the Central African Republic. From each absurdly terrifying and hilarious situation to the next, 'The Ambassador' is a one-of-a-kind excursion from the man whom The Huffington Post has called “the most provocative filmmaker in the world.”

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include Audio Commentary with Director Mads Brügger and the original theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.97.
