Mads Brügger, 2019, 128min
In 1961, a plane carrying UN Secretary-General Dag Hammarkjöld mysteriously crashed, killing Hammarskjöld and most of the crew. With the case still unsolved over 50 years later, Danish journalist, filmmaker and provocateur Mads Bügger leads viewers down an investigative rabbit-hole to unearth the truth. After scores of false starts, dead ends, and elusive interviews, Brügger begins to sniff out something more monumental than anything he initially imagined, uncovering a critical secret that could send shockwaves around the world.
