The series unfolds in Tanzania and presents a rare view of the world of charity expats dispatched from Scandinavia in the late 80’s. The expats set off in the service of a good cause, filled with idealism and drive, but during the process, they run into a wall of opposition and cultural differences that gradually and relentlessly wear away their enthusiasm in a heavy mix of gin & tonics, houses with domestic servants and lewdness in the tropical heat.
LIBERTY reminds us that freedom is also “opportunity with responsibility”. Sometimes we have to go to extremes, where nothing is familiar and everything is in a state of flux before we truly understand who we are.
The series had world premiere at the Berlinale Series section February 2018, followed by airing on DR1’s primetime drama slot Sundays at 8:00 pm to an average share of 36%
