Abdel: Between the Enemies

original title: Abdel: Between the Enemies
country: Denmark
year: 2020
running time: 30 min.


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.
