In COLD CASE HAMMARSKJÖLD Danish filmmaker Mads Brügger tries to get to the bottom of what really happened when UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld died in a plane crash in Zambia in 1961. Hammarskjöld’s effort to free African colonies from Western rule had provided him with a lot of enemies, and the case has long been clouded in mystery and suspicion. Brügger’s investigation takes him on a journey into an era when Western interests were fighting to keep their control over Africa, and the answers he finds are as strange as any conspiracy theory.
