    • Synopsis
    • As part of a dialogue project, 10 short documentaries form a unique presentation of Denmark in the wake of the Muhammed drawings.
      10 reputable Danish filmmakers are invited to collaborate with second generation immigrants with roots in the Middle East in creating 10 presentations of Denmark. Each film is considered a personal application to a relative or acquaintance of theirs in the Middle East.
      The assignment is: Give an important statement about your Denmark, with the intention of challenging and altering your relative or acquaintance's perception of Denmark.
      The strength of the films lies in insight and reflection, rather than in news-style sensationalism, the message of which is communicated through the entirely personal approach.

      The 10 films are then collated into one larger film (duration 58:30 mins), which will be a quick and intense contribution to the debate following the publication of the Muhammed drawings.
      The film was broadcasted on national Danish television as well as a Middle Eastern television station in June 2006.
