January 16, 2018

This episode of Heartland Podcast is in Danish.

Femte TALK i Heartland Podcast er en samtale fra Heartland 2016, og den handler om 'det gode'. 

Den ene deltager er den prisvindende danske forfatter og debattør Carsten Jensen, og den anden er den succesfulde danske manuskriptforfatter og filminstruktør Tobias Lindholm. Begge kunstnere har beskæftiget sig med Danmarks krigsindsats i Afghanistan - Carsten Jensen i avisspalterne, romanen Den første sten fra 2015 og reportagebogen Krigen der aldrig ender fra 2016 og Tobias Lindholm i sin Oscar-nominerede film Krigen fra 2015, der er fortællingen om en dansk soldat, der anklages for en krigsforbrydelse. Samtalen modereres af journalist og særlig rådgiver Jakob Sheikh.

De taler om nuancerne i begreberne godt og ondt, og de diskuterer om det onde altid er en forudsætning for det gode. I løbet af samtalen undersøger de også, hvordan godhed tager sig ud i kontekst af krig, og de reflekterer over, hvordan humanistens idealisme knægtes i mødet med det brutalt onde.
