By now you're surely already familiar with Mondo, the company behind some of the most innovative and beautiful poster designs around, for both classic films and new releases. Their newest partner comes from their partnership with Drafthouse Films, which will be releasing The Ambassador in New York on August 29 and Los Angeles on August 31, with a national roll-out to follow.

The Ambassador is a Danish import from famously provocative filmmaker Mads Brugger, but before we tell you what it's all about, check out the brand-new poster, which will go on sale tomorrow, August 23 (follow Mondo on Twitter for the exact sales time).

Here's the plot synopsis for The Ambassador, followed by the information about this poster.

A darkly comic, genre-bending piece of gonzo journalism. International provocateur, director and journalist Mads Brügger (filmmaker of Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner RED CHAPEL) 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-market diplomatic credentials and a bleeding-edge wit, Brügger transforms himself into an outlandish caricature of a European-African consul. As he immerses himself in the life-threatening underworld of nefarious bureaucrats, Brügger encounters blood diamond smuggling, bribery, and even murder -- while somehow managing to crack amazing razor-sharp barbs at every step along the way. From each absurdly terrifying/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.”
