Babels Torn på Bobi Bar

 

A political dark comedy about today’s most contagious ideology - nationalism

Premieres December 28, 19.00 on SVT.

The director’s uncle Dodo passes by Bobi Bar in central Copenhagen a couple of times a week to knock back a tomato juice or two. There he meets his ideological foe, Kaj, a Danish People’s Party man. They cannot stand one another, but are unable to resist each other’s company. ”Everybody else is afraid to talk to me, they stare mutely into their magazines, but Kaj, at least you talk, even though most of what you say is rubbish”, says Dodo. They argue over Muslims, Swedes and capitalism with equal amounts of hostility and humor. A political dark comedy about today’s most contagious ideology – nationalism.
