DANES FOR BUSH (video, 75 minutes) Two weird looking young Danish men in red suits travel through the USA on a mission to campaign for the re-election of President George W. Bush in 2004...and they are actually undercover artists. Enjoy a film which has been criticized for the journalistic ethic, praised for breaking new ground and misunderstood by right wing radicals in Denmark and Sweden all at the same time. Guest appearances by THE YESMEN and G. Gordon Liddy. Directed by Jakob S. Boeskov and Mads Br├╝gger.
