Contemporary Wars

AFR / Morten Hartz Kaplers

A mockumentary that interweaves reality and fiction into the construction of a drama.The director has deceived and manipulated leading world politicians, as well as politicians in his own country, thereby creating a provocative, entertaining satire that gives food for thought.The film, however, develops into a moving story about two people who experience the love of their life. AFR is a comment on the reality of modern media and on events in the international political arena. Even if AFR at the beginning informs the viewer that it is an orchestration of an outrageous lie, the audience is left to ponder the question: Was it really a lie?
