Movie Info

In 1961, Secretary General of the UN, Dag Hammarskjöld, died in a plane crash in Northern Rhodesia. He was en route to ceasefire negotiations between non combatant UN forces and troops from the breakaway state of Katanga. He was taking a stance in the fight against colonialism in times of instability and the Cold War.What started as conspiracy theories have evolved into a growing consensus that Hammarskjöld and 15 other people were shot down, inciting the UN to reopen the case on the suspicion of assassination.


Critic Reviews for Cold Case Hammarskjöld

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

  • This epic swan dive into the darkest abyss of recent African history is also the longest, most circuitous, and glib film of its kind.

  • "Cold Case Hammarskjöld" is a singular experience that counts as one of the most honestly disturbing and provocative nonfiction films in years.

  • A funny, gripping, crazed take on the mystery investigation drama.

  • The film delivers a gut punch that I never saw coming.

    May 14, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In the end, the film's (as yet unsupported) claims suggest a much deeper tangle of malfeasance, and the stuff of a conspiracy theorist's worst nightmare come to pass.

  • The pitch-black story at the heart of Cold Case Hammarskjöld has world-changing potential, if proven true beyond a reasonable doubt. It's not something to be played with... At the very least, it requires a bit more transparency than it gets here.
