In 1961, United Nations secretary-general Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane mysteriously crashed, killing Hammarskjöld and most of the crew. With the case still unsolved 50-plus years later, Danish journalist, filmmaker, and provocateur Mads Brügger (The Red Chapel, The Ambassador) leads us down an investigative rabbit hole to unearth the truth. Scores of false starts, dead ends, and elusive interviews later, Brügger and his sidekick, Swedish Göran Björkdahl, begin to sniff out something more monumental than anything they’d initially imagined.
In his signature agitprop style, Brügger becomes both filmmaker and subject, challenging the very nature of truth by “performing” the role of truth seeker. As Brügger uncovers a critical secret that could send shockwaves around the world, we realize that sometimes absurdity and irony are the emboldening ingredients needed to confront what’s truly sinister.

Directed by Mads Brügger.
In theaters August 16th

  1. Spreading the Aids virus via vaccins by South African mercenaries https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ha62FwCMpM

  2. Dag Hammarskjöld mammaknullare

  3. I’ve “disliked” five comments here but none of them show. You CIA YouTube nannies are a prickly bunch.

    Esau will pay

  5. Saw this film last night. It builds slowly, with a never before seen narrative structure. But the last 20 minutes is chilling and riveting. A real “pull back the curtain” documentary.

  6. only white folk could use real painful &evil atrocities against blacks as background fodder for some half meta conspiracy mockumentary gone wrong

    imagine he did all this as a joke &stumbled into something we all already knew about The AIDS epidemic &how it was intentionally weaponised in Africa
    now all the white western media outlets are doing what they do best
    slight of hand
    let's massage the narrative lets laugh &praise this as glorious "comedy" in hopes no one picks upon the shameful EVIL we're trying to hide in plain sight

    there will be a reckoning for all your sins. Mark my words.

    Cold Case Hammarskjöld Presents a Conspiracy You’ll Want to Believe
    By David Edelstein

    "A tricked-up documentary like Cold Case Hammarskjöld reminds you that conspiracy theories make for great yarns. They have beginnings, middles, and ends. They give multi-determined tragedies a clean historical arc. They cater to the idea that, as often as not, We Want to Believe. I can’t entirely vouch for the Danish director and TV host Mads Brügger’s new film, but I’m thrilled that it’s out there. People have died trying to tell this story, or appear to have died. There are photos and testimonies, and the trajectory as a whole makes terrible sense. I want to believe.

    The film chronicles Brügger’s six-year journey alongside Swedish private investigator Göran Björkdahl to get to the bottom of the suspicious 1961 plane crash in Zambia (then Northern Rhodesia) that killed United Nations secretary-general (and human-rights activist) Dag Hammarskjöld. The crash was initially blamed on pilot error during the plane’s descent, but the pilot’s chief error, Brügger and Björkdahl suggest, was taking off with a bomb onboard. His other error was failing to dodge bullets from a second plane (flown by an ex–Royal Air Force pilot) when said bomb didn’t explode. The bomb might ultimately have exploded, but eyewitnesses — being black — weren’t given credence by white authorities and the plane was buried more or less where it crashed. Brügger — who is on camera for much of the film — presents his bemused Swedish partner with a pair of shovels, pith helmets, and Cuban cigars and heads to recover the wreckage. I’m not sure how far they’d have gotten with shovels, but Zambian authorities get wind and put the kibosh on their digging.

    The juxtaposition of gonzo high jinks and gruesome photos of Hammarskjöld’s body is awkward. To love Cold Case Hammarskjöld as much as I do, you have to get past what a friend calls the director’s “douchiness.” Brügger leads with his meta, admitting midway through that he doesn’t entirely trust his story and has had to resort to a framing device and cartoon inserts. The inserts are useful, the framing device not so. His gimmick is to film himself in a Congolese hotel room, dictating the story of his and Björkdahl’s search to two black women typists employed singly but with their footage intercut. At various junctures, each turns from her manual typewriter and asks Brügger for clarification or offers an opinion. When the story veers in another direction — toward a conspiracy fueled in part by white-supremacist goals — the director holds on their shocked faces.

    I’d have deep-sixed those scenes, not just because they’re weirdly patronizing but because the story itself — the twisty investigation that takes Brügger and Björkdahl all over Africa and Europe — turns out to be so blood-freezing, and Brügger doesn’t need African women to validate the horror. Evidence of the conspiracy builds and branches out, finally settling at the doorstep of a paramilitary organization staffed with white mercenaries who allegedly committed crimes even more grotesque and far-reaching than the murder of Hammarskjöld. The shadow militia goes by the name of the South African Institute for Maritime Research (SAIMR), and footage of Desmond Tutu and his colleagues noting its existence during South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission in the late ’90s proves it’s not just the province of tinfoil-hatters.

    A lot of acronyms get thrown in the air, among them MI6 and CIA. That both organizations had connections to plots to destabilize newly independent African countries is by now beyond dispute, but the individuals and organizations that were tasked with carrying out the agenda have largely remained hidden — or been refracted through the lenses of John Le Carré, Frederick Forsyth, Robert Ludlum, et al. Now Brügger gives us a name: Keith Maxwell, who dresses only in white and attends formal dinners in 18th-century naval-commodore outfits with tricornered hats. He is by all reports a lively and companionable fellow with plenty of stories about operations like the one that finished off Hammarskjöld, and he will kill you without hesitation if he perceives you as a threat. A rising young SAIMR employee named Dagmar Feil learned this the hard way in the ’90s when she tried to bring some of the organization’s practices to light. But Feil’s unsolved stabbing death might also have driven the increasingly mad Maxwell to share his story in the form of a wild, semi-coherent memoir.

    Cold Case Hammarskjöld finally comes down to an ex-SAIMR employee named Alexander Jones, who holds the screen for much of the last act. If Jones is lying about himself, Maxwell, Feil, and a genocidal agenda that was run (he believes) from England, then he’s the most credible liar I’ve ever seen. “I need personal closure,” he says, but this is not a dramatic monologue. He answers questions simply, evenly, without histrionics. His testimony marks the close of Cold Case Hammarskjöld but might well be the beginning of the next cold case, which will encompass the history of postcolonial Africa and even — this is the film’s most jaw-dropping charge — the spread of AIDS via so-called philanthropic clinics. Was the potential for increased control by black Africans over their own resources the impetus for Hammarskjöld’s killing way back in 1961?

    If, like so many conspiracy-mongers, Brügger is in this to make his name, whatever the social consequences, his comeuppance should be swift. But I want to believe that this isn’t a stunt and that his first-person meta nonsense — his desire to call attention to his floundering — is a sign of honesty, not obscurantism. He wants to share his process with us to remind us that, nowadays, we’re all engaged in the work of separating false conspiracies from true ones. Maybe that jokey shovel sequence can be taken as a metaphor: I have done my modest digging; now it’s time to bring in the earthmovers."


  8. I guess I'll have to watch. DH was revered by my 6th grade teacher in '72 whom I deeply respected.
    Question: Is Maxwell THE Robert Maxwell, or is that just a common name for CIA or MI5/6 operatives?

  9. More of a mocumentary than a documentary

  10. Is this available online to watch or just in the cinema?

  11. Dag Hammarskjöld was also the biographical subject of CIA Analyst Robert Lichello. Mr. Lichello is most famous for his book "How to Make $1,000,000 in the Stock Market Automatically" however there is a lot more to this 'financial puzzle' than meets the eye. The money is used to further Dag Hammarskjöld's vision of solidarity; lived through Robert Lichello (who passed away in 2001); and continues to live today through a few of us custodians who see the vision. If you see the vision, then you're welcome to join us – and make a few million $ along the way. MX@Financial.Engineering

  12. All his fantasies came true.

  13. Saw it today. RIVETED!

  14. Nate Perry says:

    My middle school was named after him so I guess I'll watch it because it clearly affects my life greatly.

  15. Que puede ser mas probable: que ya exista la cura del virus o que su origen fue producto de la misma humanidad. Para una original serie

  16. Wow, this seems super idiotic and that's the best thing I could say about it tbh

  17. feritosman says:

    Severely stupid. Based on hearsay and scientifically implausible conspiracy theories. On scripted sounding and looking "interviews" with people saying some outrageous thing and the movie picking up on that as truth. No real evidence whatsoever. Worst movie I have seen. Also cannot manage to be funny.

  18. Dan Xmas says:

    another Mads Brügger joint, cant wait

  19. This is how you create a great conspiracy. I love it.
