Cold Case Hammarskjöld
- This event has passed.
Danish director Mads Brügger and Swedish private investigator Göran Björkdahl set out to solve the mysterious death of United Nations Secretary-General, Dag Hammarskjöld, in a plane crash in Zambia in 1961. As their investigation tacks back and forth from the intense to the ridiculous to the ridiculously intense, what seems at first like an offbeat and fascinating journalistic inquiry becomes – through a series of evasive interviews, conspiracy theories and dead ends – a route to discovery of a far worse crime. Brügger casts himself at the centre of this storytelling performance, which appears at times almost absurd but is always compelling, creating a thrilling dynamic that forces our examination of the very nature of truth itself.
