The latest film from filmmaker/provocateur Mads Brügger (The Red Chapel) begins as a quest to discover whether or not UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld’s 1961 death in a plane crash was the result of foul play. His subsequent findings, presented in a style that varies between absurd and riveting, involve mercenary armies, the CIA, and some extremely dark state secrets.

REVIEWS

“”Cold Case Hammarskjöld” is a singular experience that counts as one of the most honestly disturbing and provocative nonfiction films in years.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety
