What happens when a women takes part in a race traditionally reserved for men and manages to get hold of a holy cross that an Orthodox priest throws into a river?

Cold Case Hammarskjöld
Date and Time: Saturday, 7 December 2019, 8.30pm

Dag Hammarskjöld died in a suspicious plane crash in 1961 on his way to ceasefire negotiations in order to resolve a conflict in Katanga, Congo, in which significant economic interests were at stake. The Swedish UN Secretary General was a progressive politician who wanted to prevent Western countries like Britain and France from reinstating their influence in Africa, after colonies had gained independence. Mads Brügger’s slow-building documentary sheds light onto the mystery.

This is the third time in the LUX Prize’s history that a documentary is among the three finalists.
