Abdel: Between the Enemies

original title: Abdel: Between the Enemies
country: Denmark
running time: 30 min.

synopsis

An effort to bridge the gap in society led to the creation of this remarkable and internationally acclaimed project. In each episode, two opponents with completely different mindsets and views – including, for example, those who write hateful messages on social media – meet face to face. The show’s moderator is the renowned journalist, Abdel Aziz Mahmoud, and the goal, of course, is not to make the opponents like each other, but rather to make them willing to discuss and listen to each other's arguments. (30 minutes)

Could politics appear attractive on TV?
Most TV viewers see as the most boring such documents, TV journalism and even entertainment formats that focus on political issues. This workshop will present three programs that prove to be the very opposite of boring: The Circus, a Showtime docusoap, following the US presidential campaigns since the first primaries in January 2016; BBC’s An Idiot's Guide to Politics, which reminds politicians of their broken promises; and Channel 4’s Ballot Monkeys, a satirical series, where TV audience watches the British election campaign through the eyes of four MP hopefuls.---Workhop is led by Milan Kruml

Hunted
A group of people have the task of remaining in hiding for a month while the world’s best trackers (detectives and secret service personnel) try to find them. Today, we leave behind digital traces with every step – in addition to security cameras, it is also possible to trace activity on social networks and the use of credit cards. Is it possible to completely disappear in the twenty-first century?

Matchmakers
The show’s motto is: let your friends choose your partner because they know you best. Groups of friends organize three dates for their unsuspecting friend. Each date is planned in advance and subsequently monitored by hidden cameras. After the final revelation, it is only up to the friend who they will go on a romantic trip with.

Back in Time for the Weekend, The 70s
This reality show makes it possible for a British four-member family to travel in time and experience a different decade each week through “the life of one household” (starting with the 1950s and ending with a fictional future). This entertaining socio-cultural experiment moves smoothly between topics like fashion, technology, and politics, and even covers “what vacuum cleaners meant for women, and mortgages for the middle-class”.

Day the Government Left
Do you think that the government could do a better job? Do you think that you could look after the greater good better than your town? One street in the English town of Preston is trying to do just that. But life without garbage collecting, public lighting, schools or retirement homes transforms neighborly relations more than they expected.
